The so-called "Donetsk People's Republic" has decided its "athletes" should take part in the world competitions, including the Olympic Games and the European Championships.
The so-called “DPR” government has already approved the corresponding "document".
- "Minister of Youth, Sports and Tourism of the DPR" Mishin has approved the "Regulations on the DPR Unified Sports Classification", which implies that the pro-Russian militants want to surprise the world with their athletic achievements. In particular, they have declared that “DPR” ”teams" and "athletes" will take part in the Olympic and World Games, as well as World and European Championships, Dmitry Tymchuk, Head of the "Information Resistance," wrote on Facebook.
As QHA reported earlier, Sergei Lavrov, Head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said Russia is ready to take measures against the officials of the ‘DPR’ and ‘LPR’ pseudo-Republics, which it backs. On March 4, the 'Normandy Four' wrapped up talks in Paris on the peaceful regulation of the Ukrainian-Russian conflict, but, according to Pavel Klimkin, Ukraine's Foreign Affairs Minister, no compromises have been reached.
