In 2021, MAZ-SPORTauto crews were not allowed to participate in the Dakar by decision of the race organizers due to EU sanctions against a number of individuals and legal entities in Belarus. Banning measures affected the Minsk Automobile Plant (MAZ). MAZ-SPORTauto is a factory team.

— Have you managed to resolve the financial problem with the Dakar organizers?

– No. Understanding that the Minsk automobile plant is under sanctions, our federation in 2021 took on the role of a candidate team for the race and payer of fees. Unfortunately, ASO’s response is as follows: “We suspect that in case of return, the money will be credited to the account of the company under sanctions, and we are ready to return it only when MAZ is freed from restrictions. »

– Trial?

— We have not started the trial. I think in the current realities of the political system, it’s wasted money. Few believe in a fair decision by European courts regarding Belarus.

— The amount amounts to hundreds of thousands of euros?

– She’s quite impressive.

— What does the federation think?

“It’s unfortunate,” Viazovich told .
