Famous figure skater Evgeny Plushenko insists on the participation of Russian athletes in the Olympics under a neutral flag, the position of the sports figure expressed the day before. According to Plushenko, the state should support all who dare to go to South Korea in winter.
The skater insists that the most important thing for a real athlete – a belief in themselves and their country, and no bans should not break it. There is such a situation that the Russians could not admit to the Olympics and all, but when there is such a chance, and you can go there under a neutral flag – those you must use.
Earlier it became known that the international Olympic Committee decided not to allow athletes from Russia for the Olympic games under its own flag. Meanwhile, the state Duma did not insist on the boycott, but President Vladimir Putin said that will not interfere with the travel of athletes under a neutral flag.
