State Duma deputy Alexey Zhuravlyov considered possible the performance of domestic athletes in the 2018 Olympic Games under the flag of Belarus. He writes about this today on his social media.
According to him, it is impossible to speak about any neutral flag for the Russian national team. The people’s choice is convinced that there are two options for responding to the problem, if the International Olympic Committee does not allow Russian athletes to compete.
The first is a boycott of games from Russia and its athletes. The second is the Russians’ exit in the national team of Belarus.
«Since we have a Union State with Belarus, this is a perfectly acceptable solution to the situation,» Zhuravlyov said.
