Date: March 15, 2022

Category: Uncategorized

e世博备用网址 President Sandro Di Girolamo:

“With reference to the decisions issued by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), and on the basis of the official decisions made by other International Federations, we hereby inform our members that the e世博备用网址 Board has decided to suspend the national representatives of Russia and Belarus from all international events organised under the aegis of e世博备用网址.

“It was a very difficult and painful decision because it is inevitably penalizing athletes who have no direct responsibility for the current international situation, but at the same time as having to provide political and strategic direction, we want to show our closeness to the Ukrainian people and to condemn all forms of violence and war. Clearly, we wish to reconsider this decision as soon the situation will allow it.”
