Former world heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko criticized the head of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach, for the possible admission of Russian athletes to the 2024 Olympics.
“Thomas Bach talks all the time about the “neutrality” of the IOC. The fact is that Bach is not neutral. He represents Russia’s interests, not Olympic values. He cannot stand under the white flag. Sports, business and politics have a lot in common with each other. The Olympic Games in particular have always been part of politics.
Unfortunately, Bach does not represent Olympic values, but an aggressor, supports propaganda. Many Russian athletes represent the clubs of the RF Ministry of Defense. They have competed in the Winter Olympics and are now planning to compete in the next Summer Games. Russian propaganda takes advantage of this. You are unleashing an aggressor, a murderer and his representatives and accomplices on the world stage.”
I have not yet seen any of the current Russian athletes publicly oppose the war. So they support her. And we have already seen athletes with the Z sign. They support this regime, this war, this propaganda,” Wladimir Klitschko said.
