Russian athletes, who take part in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, received information leaflets from the country’s Olympic Committee, reported Russian news agency URA.Ru.
In addition to advice on diet, flight schedules the leaflets have a world map showing the athletes’ route with arrows. Each country is painted in national colors.
Crimea is no exception: in the leaflet of the Russian Olympic Committee the peninsula is painted in blue and yellow.
The social networks are actively discussing the incident - someone considers it a designers’ mistake, while others - a strategic move to avoid scandals in Rio.
- And what to do when it is necessary to avoid scandals. One will fail to push for the rights in Rio since it is a foreign country that listens to the international community, not just to the Russia’s stance, wrote one of the Internet users.
