Instead of being with the whole civilized world, the Russians preferred to submit to the leadership of their country.
Defeat for the 2023 Dakar Rally. The most titled raid team among trucks, Kamaz-master, will not participate in the competition.
The fact is that the leadership and participants of the 19-time Dakar champion refused to condemn the war in Ukraine. Instead, Kamaz-master preferred to hide his head in the sand and refused to participate in the next rally.
“The participation of Russian athletes in the Dakar Rally is due to the need to sign a questionnaire from the International Automobile Federation (FIA), which condemned Russia’s special operation in Ukraine. In our opinion, the content of this document is political in nature, and also violates the principles of equal conditions for athletes. We consider it impossible for us to sign such documents and participate in competitions under these conditions.
Our choice is clear – we are always with our Motherland, especially when it is in a difficult situation,” reads a press release on the team’s official website.
It will be remembered that earlier the International Ice Hockey Federation reported that the Russian teams are not about to return to the international arena.
