Russia banned from 2018 Winter Olympics
 Part of channel(s): Ukraine (current event)

On the 5th of december the I.O.C decided to ban Russia as a nation in the upcoming 2018 Winter Games in South Korea. This was done after overwhelming evidence of a state run doping program came to light in the preceding years. Russian athletes are allowed to compete in the games under a neutral Olympic flag and indepedent testing.

In 2015 the german ARD channel broadcasted a documentary widely accusing the Russian govt of cheating during the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi. Several Russian whistlebowers came forward after this, including the Russian WADA President Grigori Rodchenkov. The whistleblowers fled Russia, most of them living under the WITSEC program in the United States in fear of being hunted down by Russian foreign agents.

  • So what ! Anyway, Putler former high-school friend took some BILLIONS (only aprox. 30 ) for contracting invisible construction works there. So, it's better for the russian hard-working citizens to ban Russia from everything; at least in this way Kremlin gangsters will be stopped to steal funds as usual. But good news is that they will anyway steal from other funds. So, sleep more, the STATE will always be wake for you, comrades.

  • If that state-sponsored doping program was unveiled 30 years ago, both Russia AND the Russian athletes would have been banned from the competition.
    Banning a flag only is appeasement.

    Did I told you that in February 2016, two high-ranking directors of the RUSASA (Russian National Anti-Doping Agency) — Vyacheslav Sinyev and Nikita Kamayev - who allegedly were about to talk and release a book, suddenly died of heart attack? Yes, both in February 2016.

  • They are banned for conspiring against the world's athletes ... but back in Putin's Russia ... they believe this is all a conspiracy against them.

    Sad AND stupid. But, keep them out until they realize that cheating is NOT FAIR is the best strategy.

    • @ethicon
      The figures comes from the anti-doping organization of each country.
      Since the RUSASA (Russian National Anti-Doping Agency) had "beyond a reasonable doubt", operated for the protection of doped Russian athletes and was "under improper influence from the Russian Ministry of Sport", you know the numbers they gave to the international body were FAKE.

      btw in February 2016, two high-ranking directors of the organisation — Vyacheslav Sinyev and Nikita Kamayev died, More..

  • If you have any doubt that this is political motivated decision then look list of doping violation per test per country. Russia isn't even in the top 10:

    -

    Next thing to look at is the list of people who make up International Olympic Committee which voted for the decision to ban Russia from Olympics:

    Thomas BACH, Germany
    Zaiqing YU, China
    Juan Antonio SAMARANCH, Spain
    Ugur ERDENER. Turkey
    Anita L. DEFRANTZ, USA
    Gunilla LINDBERG, Sweden
    Gian-Franco KASPER, More..
