The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“Olympic principles and war fundamentally oppose each other. Russia must stop aggression and terror, and only after that it will be possible to talk about Russian participation in the context of the Olympic movement,” the President of Ukraine wrote.
In addition, Zelensky posted a series of photographs, depicting the sports facilities destroyed by Russian troops in Ukraine.
A reminder that the International Olympic Committee issued a statement, saying that Russian and Belarusian athletes could participate in the Paris Olympic Games as neutral.
