Russian Paralympians allegedly ridiculed the Ukrainians. At least that’s what a British athlete who has information about alleged bullying says. It allegedly began when the International Paralympic Committee banned Russians and Belarusians from participating in the Beijing Paralympic Games.
A Paralympian from the UK accused Russian athletes of making fun of Ukrainians. The case occurred after the Russians and Belarusians were expelled from the Beijing Paralympic Games due to the war in Ukraine due to a decision of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).
He came up with the information according to the website Sports Bible British athlete Richard Whitehead on Good Morning Britain. “I have heard that Russian athletes are sending reports to Ukrainian athletes about the bombing of their homes. It’s terrible and disgusting behavior,“He said that the Russians had ridiculed Ukrainians that he did not like at all.
“I feel that the decision to send Russian athletes home is the right one,“added a two-time Paralympic winner.”It just shows that Russian and Belarusian athletes don’t really think war is going on at home, and they don’t know how it affects not only athletes but also the Ukrainian community,“he expressed his opinion on why Russian athletes need such behavior.
He also condemned the IPC’s original decision that both Russians and Belarusians could start the Paralympics under a neutral flag. However, after pressure from the environment, the committee representatives changed the original verdict and banned the athletes from starting.
The war against Russia has been going on in Ukraine for more than a week:
