News “Russia should not be allowed to participate in the Olympics.” Last Minute France, Russia headlines and events


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on France, saying allowing Russia to compete in the 2024 Olympics in Paris, France would “show that terrorism is acceptable.”

Zelensky said that he had sent a letter with his opinion and a request on this matter to French President Emmanuel Macron.

Making a statement to this effect in his video speech last night, the President of Ukraine said that “Moscow cannot be allowed to use the Olympics as propaganda.”

Noting that there can be no neutrality in sport while his country’s athletes are dying on the battlefield, Zelenskiy referred to the 1936 Olympics held in Berlin during Nazi rule. The President of Ukraine said: “A big mistake was made in the Olympics. The paths of the Olympic movement and terrorist states should definitely not intersect.”

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has announced that Russian and Belarusian athletes can participate impartially in the Olympics.

The statement notes that “athletes should not be prevented from competing just because of their passports,” but said it would boycott Paris 2024 if Ukrainian, Russian and Belarusian athletes were allowed to compete.

The British government also denounced the plan to allow athletes to compete impartially, calling it “a world far removed from the reality of war”.

The Paris Olympic Games will be held from July 26 to August 11, 2024.
