    Stanislav Pozdnyakov:

    – In light of the recent statements from the IOC over the past two days, it is becoming increasingly evident that the organization’s leadership has entered a realm akin to a looking glass, where the conventional understanding of cause and effect is inverted, black appears as white, and an alternate reality is portrayed as truth.

    For the past two years, Lausanne has continuously strayed from and disregarded the core tenets of the Olympic Charter by imposing unjust and inhumane sanctions and bans on Russian and Belarusian athletes, engaging in discriminatory practices based on nationality. This runs counter to the fundamental principles of Olympism and undermines the unconditional right of athletes to participate in competitions on an equal footing.  The IOC time after time comes up with illegal criteria for ineligibility, while the Russian Olympic Committee violates the Charter, according to Thomas Bach.

    From the outset, the International Olympic Committee has openly aligned itself with one side of a political conflict, a stance that inherently contradicts its mission. It has consistently adhered to external political directives aimed at isolating Russian sport. Now, it has even gone as far as delegating the authority to approve candidates for the Olympic Games from one country to the National Olympic Committee of another country. But in Lausanne’s opinion, Russia is politicizing sport.

    Finally, Thomas Bach states that it is up to the ROC to restore relations between the IOC and Russia. Are there still individuals in the sports world who, thinking rationally, fail to recognize that the solution to artificially created contradictions within the Olympic family, traditionally within Lausanne’s purview, has now been transferred across the Atlantic?

    The IOC has unfortunately lost its autonomy and independence, this is clearly reflected in the mirror of the world. That is why all slogans and declarations today are from the looking glass.
