Poland will boycott the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024 if athletes from Russia and Belarus take part in them. This was announced on the radio station RMF FM by Pavel Yablonsky, Deputy Foreign Minister of Poland.

If athletes from Belarus and Russia are allowed to compete in the 2024 Olympics, we should boycott the Games. This is the pressure we should put on the IOC.

The diplomat sharply condemned the efforts of the IOC to return Russians and Belarusians to the Olympics under a neutral flag.

If there is any money behind this, it is worthy of the highest condemnation. But even if there were none , making such a decision – this is not only a crime, it is a mistake.

According to him, if the “moral qualities of sports activists” were evaluated, then in many cases “they would be, to put it mildly, not the highest” ;.

BAGNET recalls that on January 25, the IOC executive committee allowed the return of Russian and Belarusian athletes to international competitions without the right to represent their states. It was proposed to allow only those athletes who did not support Russian aggression against Ukraine.

The ministries of sports of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland appealed to the IOC to prevent athletes from Russia and Belarus from participating in international competitions. Countries opposed the admission of athletes from aggressor states even in a neutral status. Ukraine accused the IOC of bribery from Russia and announced a possible boycott.
