Representatives of the Russian Federation have no place in world sports. In particular, at the World Judo Championship, which will be held in Tashkent in October.

This was stated by the Minister of Youth and Sports of Ukraine Vadim Gutzeitreports Ukrinform.

“Together with the President of the NOC of Ukraine Serhiy Bubka, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba, the President of the Judo Federation of Ukraine Mykhailo Koshlyak, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Hungary Lyubov Nepop and our World Judo Champion Georgy Zantaraia , we have done everything we can to prevent the Russian Federation from becoming the world carpet championship,” the minister wrote.

Such a decision is not only fair, but also symbolic. Before the bloody war against Ukraine, the Russian dictator was stripped of the status of honorary president of the International Judo Federation and Russian judoka was denied the right to participate in prestigious international competitions.

As Gutzeit noted, a terrorist country should be an exile for the entire civilized world. Sports is no exception.
