Ukrainian politicians’ reaction to Putin’s article about the unity of Russians and Ukrainians is natural because they had been brought up in an anti-Russian ideology. They are puppets. Putin’s words run contrary to what anti-Russian propaganda had taught them. Russian-Ukrainian confrontation is a historic mistake and was provoked from outside.
Russian athletes will not compete under the Russian flag during the olympics in Tokyo. Their uniforms will not have any symbols, reminding of Russia. Those sanctions are formally introduced because of the doping scandals, but in reality it is a part of the logics behind the West's cold war against Russia.
An unfounded claim, presented without any evidence.
Russia did violate the rules of international sports; organising a state-sponsored system of doping athletes. Russia has failed to set up mechanisms to guarantee that similar schemes are not used.
A panel of judges of the Court of Arbitration for Sports ruled that "The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (“RUSADA”) is found to be non-compliant with the World AntiDoping Code (“WADC”) in connection with its failure to procure that the authentic LIMS data and underlying analytical data of the former Moscow Laboratory was received by WADA."
