“The government agrees with the participation of Russians and Belarusians as neutral athletes”

Giovanni Malagò, President of Coni, in his speech to the National Council, announced the Italian government’s position on the question of Russian and Belarusian athletes: “The question of Russian and Belarusian athletes is closed, it must be formalized at any moment.” If you international competitions host in Italy, see fencing in Milan with the World Championships, nobody can prevent you from issuing competition visas to Russian and Belarusian athletes, provided they respect IOC restrictions.”

“There are such constraints that the first to get angry are the Russians, but if they don’t accept these conditions, that’s their problem, although despite all the restrictions imposed, Ukraine cannot think of boycotting a demonstration because they otherwise would fail. “the wrong thing”.

He then concluded: “Britain itself, after having prevented the Wimbledon visa last year, acknowledges today the invitation of the same Russian tennis player, NoIt’s not clear why the same can’t apply to other sports when Russia’s Medvedev can win the International Games in Rome and be applauded by both the audience and the ministers present‘ concludes Malaga.
