The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba on Twitter, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“Sports, state propaganda, and the army are indivisible in Russia. And now Putin has already introduced not only politics, but also war crimes into sports. There is no way for Russian or Belarusian athletes to compete in the Paris Olympics or any other major sporting event,” Kuleba wrote.
A reminder that Ukrainian athletes participated in filming a video address to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), having requested that Russian and Belarusian athletes be not allowed to take part in competitions, namely the 2024 Paris Olympics.
