The UK is unlikely to boycott the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris if Russian and Belarusian athletes are admitted there. This was reported by Daily Mail.
According to the publication, the UK does not intend to boycott the Games, even despite the fact that the admission of Russians and Belarusians has been criticized by many organizations. It is also reported that this decision is unlikely to be affected by the attempts of the British government to convene a global summit to discuss plans to block the access of athletes.
Next Friday, February 10 coalition against the return of Russians and Belarusians.
BAGNET recalls that at the end of February 2022, the IOC addressed the international sports federations and recommended them not to let Russian and Belarusian athletes to any competitions.
On January 25, the IOC announced that it was considering the possibility of allowing Russian athletes to neutral status to international competitions, who did not express support for the conduct of full-scale military operations of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.
