Lithuania: Russian Athletes Denied Access to Paris Olympics
Moscow, March 10 – At a meeting on Friday, the Lithuanian Parliament adopted a resolution calling on the parliaments of other countries to prevent the participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes in international competitions, including the Olympic Games, including under a neutral flag.
It is noteworthy that 109 deputies who attended the meeting voted in favor of the resolution.
On January 25, the IOC Executive Committee called for the return of Russian and Belarusian athletes to international competitions in a neutral position, while proposing that athletes who actively supported the special operation not be allowed into Ukraine. Later, the governments of more than 30 countries opposed the participation of Russians and Belarusians in the Olympic Games. The President of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach, said that governments should not decide who can participate in international competitions.
