Bach said that the IOC monitors the public statements of Russian athletes


President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Thomas Bach, in a conversation with pranksters Vovan and Lexus (Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov), said that the IOC monitors the public statements of Russian athletes. Excerpts from the conversation were published in Telegram- prankster channel.

Thomas Bach, in a conversation with an allegedly African official, said that the international committee had created a special commission to monitor the public statements of Russian athletes. “We also offered to the Ukrainian side and not only offered, but also asked to provide us with their information about the behavior of such athletes or officials,” said Mr. Bach. He added that athletes who spoke out in favor of supporting Russia will not be able to take part in the Olympic Games.

March 29 Thomas Bach statedthat a boycott of the Olympic Games in Paris by Ukraine and Russia was avoided. According to the approved IOC rules, Russian and Belarusian athletes are allowed to the Olympics only in a neutral status, exclusively in the individual competition and provided that the athlete is not associated with law enforcement agencies. Also, athletes will not be able to take part in the opening ceremony of the Games. The Olympic Games will be held in Paris from July 26 to August 11, 2024. The IOC assumes that only 36 Russian athletes will participate.
