The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has banned athletes from Russia and Belarus. In view of the Ukraine crisis, the IOC Executive Board (EB) has decided to suspend all International (IF) events from organizing any events in Russia or Belarus. Athletes from these countries will also not be able to participate in events held in other countries.
In fact, the IOC asks the Olympic Association of the respective country (here Russia and Belarus) to consider imposing sanctions. This recommendation is accepted in 100% of the cases. Therefore, the IOC’s recommendation of a ban on Russia and Belarus should be considered a ban.
The IOC on Friday condemned him for participating in the Russia-Belarus war. The IOC had said – EB urges all international sports federations to move or cancel their sporting events currently planned in Russia or Belarus. They should take into account the violation of the Olympics by the Russian and Belarusian governments and protect the athletes.
“The IOC EB today urges all international sports federations to relocate or cancel their sporting events currently planned in Russia or Belarus.
