"The organizing committee previously set the task to get 180 licenses for participating in the Olympic Games [in Rio de Janeiro]. Ukrainian athletes have already gained 187 licenses, and this process is not completed yet," Zhdanov said.
Summer Olympics 2016 will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on August 5-21, 2016.
