Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia: IOC interferes in the internal affairs of independent countries! – rahnam

According to rahnam news agency, Maria Zakharova, the spokesperson of the Russian Foreign Ministry, issued a statement regarding the International Olympic Committee (IOC) leadership’s request to the National Olympic Committees to prevent their athletes from participating in the World Friendship Games in Russia in 2024.

Zakharova said the IOC’s statement asking national Olympic committees to bar their athletes from Russia’s 2024 World Friendship Games increasingly shows that the organization is calling for improved sports cooperation but not its Western sponsors around the world. Not only do they support illegal restrictions on Russian athletes, but they also try to interfere in the internal affairs of independent countries against their orders. We are deeply convinced that every country has the right to host international events on its territory. Sports and the right to participate in sports competitions are universal values ​​and no one has a monopoly in this field, no matter how much some international sports authorities want it to the contrary.

The spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia noted: We follow the fact that the organization of large humanitarian events on the territory of Russia is exclusively reserved for the leadership and interested public of our country.
