A European Parliament event to discuss the participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes in the 2024 Olympic Games

On 12 July, MEPs Thomasz Frankowski and Michaela Sojdrova organised a discussion on the question “Should Russian and Belarusian athletes participate in the Olympics 2024?”. The discussion focused on the recommendations created by an expert committee of the Czech Olympic Committee on how to manage the readmission of neutral athletes, considering the Olympic Charter and international frameworks like the UN Charter. According to the recommendations, the readmission to the Olympic Games of Russian and Belarusian athletes as neutral athletes, who are not attached to the military or security services, should follow a four-step approach, with the major element being a declaration condemning any act of aggression on the territorial integrity of any UN member state.
