Athletistic/ Others. The President of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach, during the General Assembly of the Association of National Olympic Committees, announced that the sanctions against Russians and Belarusians had been extended.

“At the moment, the only way to pursue our policy has been to recommend to the IFs not to authorize athletes because of their passport. We must prevent sport from becoming a popular instrument of sanctions.

We will defend values ​​and not fall into the trap of the propaganda machine that condemns the measures we have taken. The reasons for these measures are still important and now is not the time to reverse them,” Bach said.
