The National Olympic Committee of Ukraine argues the validity of this information. Such statements are considered an attempt to discredit the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine, its members and the Ukrainian national team.

The National Olympic Committee of Ukraine reserves the right to legal protection of dignity and business reputation of the organization and the Ukrainian sport.
