The Russian Human Rights Council also called on international sports organizations to stand in solidarity with their Paralympic athletes, "political games harmed people outside politics, who overcame the pain and did not miss a single training session to reach their goal", delimit.

"Today, we ask you to carefully evaluate this situation and to condemn the decision of the International Paralympic Committee to exclude innocent Russian people with disabilities from the JJ.PP. and to discriminate against them for political reasons," emphasizes the letter from the instance of the Russian Presidency.

The Russian authority recalls that the Paralympic Games are based on unity and non-discrimination, therefore, the exclusion of a delegation is contradictory, "with the exclusion of Russia, the JJ.PP. became, unfortunately and paradoxically, a source of hostility and discord," they add.

"For the past six years, the International Paralympic Committee has cruelly violated the same principle in relation to Russian Paralympic athletes," recalls the Russian Human Rights Council.

The statement by the authorities in Moscow comes after the International Paralympic Committee last Wednesday excluded Russian and Belarusian athletes, this after the conflict in Ukraine.
