After a conversation with IOC boss Thomas Bach, Selenskyj called for Russia to be permanently excluded from international sporting events.

"A fair answer for a terrorist state can only be its complete isolation in the international arena," said Zelenskyj on Wednesday after the phone call with Bach.

The principles of the Olympic movement are not compatible with those of a "terror state".

Russia should not be allowed to use sporting events for its propaganda purposes.

Since the beginning of the war, 184 athletes have been killed by Russian actions, Zelenskyy said.

There should therefore be no way back into world sport for Russian representatives.

The silence of the athletes, coaches and sports officials in Russia encourages aggression, Zelenskyj justified his demand.

The Russian leadership, on the other hand, repeatedly emphasizes that sport and politics should be kept separate.

The giant empire relies on allies in Asia, India and Latin America not loudly condemning the war and not supporting the western sanctions.
