WADA is about to strip Russia of its flag

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) continues a multi-year systematic campaign aimed at discrediting Russian sports and denigrating the image of Russia.

The anti-doping agency’s press service issued a statement saying that the WADA Compliance Committee recommended that the Executive Committee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) suspend Russia from participating in international competitions for four years.

If the recommendations of the committee are adopted by the IOC Executive Committee at the next meeting, which will be held on December 9, Russia will also be prohibited from hosting international competitions during this period.

One of the sanctions in the general package of recommendations provides for a ban on athletes from Russia to use their flag and anthem during international competitions.

The opinions of experts regarding whether the IOC Executive Committee would accept WADA recommendations were divided.

Two-time Olympic pole vault champion Elena Isinbaeva is inclined to believe that the agency’s recommendations will be accepted by the Olympic committee. On her Instagram page, she wrote that practice shows that if there are recommendations (WADA), then they are taken into account and implemented.

At the same time, Norwegian Linda Helleland, vice president of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), said that the executive committee might not accept the agency’s recommendations due to pressure from the IOC.

However, there is little time left before the meeting of the IOC Executive Committee, and it will soon become clear whether he is able to make independent decisions.

    In this case, the Russian Federation needs to stop funding all of these organizations with Russophobia, let them lose weight, maybe grow wiser ...

      Maybe, just knowing how much attention is being paid to this issue now, stop possible fraud with doping, and not refer to any "organizations sick with Russophobia"? This is when there is nothing to say on the topic, all sorts of excuses begin in the form of a transition to personalities.

    Soon, a whole generation of athletes will grow up under the white flag. laughing negative But in the State Duma they are already from United Russia, maybe there will be fewer.
    But seriously. Well, by shame did you manage to turn the tide under the white flag and without a national anthem? If you go again under the white flags, love yourself and respect yourself.
  3. In vain, it means they caved in! Maybe it's better to leave the IOC before everything settles down?

      You give your IOC 2.0 with the DPRK, LDNR, Venezuela, Iran, the Central African Republic and maybe Cuba !! Although Iran and Cuba are probably not completely crazy to leave the real IOC.

    Sadly, this time the claims are well-founded. The Athletics Federation excelled.

    WADA is about to strip Russia of its flag

    Sagging (and without any benefit) under any WADA, Russia itself deprived itself of pride.
    It is ridiculous to imagine that Americans / Chinese / French / etc. would appear under a neutral white flag.
    And in the Russian Federation, this is all right. Well, who will respect those after that?

    Do athletes need money and continued careers? This can be provided by the RF itself. Quit these organizations, stop paying dues. To hold in parallel the Championship of the Russian Federation for the same prize money, or even more, as at international competitions. The white flag is hands up. Nobody is going to kick the Russian Federation out of football and hockey or tennis, and this is enough for a "window to Europe".
