“The world is watching. History will judge."

The possibility that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) reinstate the Russian and Belarusian athletes in international competitions with a view to Olympic Games Paris 2024 continues to cause great controversy.

One of the reactions against it comes precisely from Ukraine, it is about the ex-boxer Vladimir Klitschko, who expressed his discontent through a video in which he harshly addresses Thomas Bach, IOC President.

"Dear Thomas Bachyou are the president of the IOC. You are the representative of the universal values ​​of tolerance and peace. Proposes to return to authorize Russian and Belarusian athletes to participate in the Paris Games”, He says klitschko in the video that he published through his account Twitter and in which you can see him in kyiv in front of various war-torn buildings in his country

I tell him that the Russians are Olympic champions in crimes against civilians. They have the gold medal in deportation of children and rape of women.

You cannot put your Olympic emblem on these crimes because you will be complicit in this abominable war. Do not do this, otherwise you will betray the Olympic spirit.

And the former boxer, now a civil servant, adds:

A country that tramples on the basic principles of international law cannot be legitimized and supported by the international sports body. Don't make this mistake, this monumental mistake. The world is watching. History will judge. Good luck with your decision.

Wladimir Klitschkowhose brother is also a boxer Vitali, is he mayor of kyiv and went Olympic champion in Athens 1996. In it professional boxing retired in 2017, with a 64-5 record and after being heavyweight champion of the world in its four versions (IBF, IBO, WBO and WBA).

IOC pointed out that "No athlete should be prevented from competing just because of their passport" Y paved the way for Russians and Belarusians can participate as “neutral athletes”always respecting the principles of the Olympic Charter, which would mean that those who have supported the war in Ukraine could not compete. Nor those who have missed the World Anti-Doping Code.

The return of the Russian and Belarusian athletes could be through asian competitions, After the offer made by the Olympic Council of Asia.
