Ukrainian athletes have recorded an appeal against the decision of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to admit Russians and Belarusians to the Olympic Games-2024 in Paris under a neutral flag. The appeal was recorded by Dynamo midfielder Andriy Yarmolenko, Marta Kostyuk, Zhan Beleniuk, Mikhail Romanchuk, Anna Ryzhikova and Yaroslava Maguchikh.
"Russian athletes support war - Russian athletes go to the Olympics. Russia despises international law - Russian athletes go to the Olympics. Russia kills children - Russian athletes go to the Olympics. Russia destroys cities - Russian athletes go to the Olympics. Russian athletes have no place at the Olympics," reads the appeal.
Russians and Belarusians will be able to compete in individual starts, while teams will not be allowed to compete. The Olympics-2024 will be held from 26 July to 11 August.
