Here is the interview with Vic in English. Interesting reading

https://meduza.io/en/feature/2017/12/07 ... are-broken

He says he wasnt involved and discredits that anything like the doping scandal could have happened - not enough evidence, the operation was supposedly too big, he would have heard something. You can doubt that he is that naive as he then paints the whole thing as a political action. In fact he uses word-for-word the same argumentation as in this thread right here, its East vs. West rivalry, its America painting Russia as a bad guy, the whataboutisms (of course with pictures) and conspiracy conspiracy conspiracy.

Now for the clean athletes everything could be very difficult.

The Olympic Committee was already considering banning Russia in the last summer games but voted not to in order to finish their investigations. Watch the movie Icarus, it details the timeline of events very well.

IOC has faced a new problem due to the removal of Russians from the Olympics

"The question is whether athletes are allowed to display Russian symbols at the facilities of the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, has not yet been decided and will be discussed at the International Olympic Committee (IOC)"(с) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I do not really understand what they are against!
They did not want to see Russian athletes at the Olympic Games. Now they yourself are afraid to go!
But all the provocations they organize themselves! And the neighboring military state is provoked, now the brains are blown up by the Muslims ... And now they are worried about the safety of their athletes!
That's why they do not want to live peacefully on their "island" ? Why do they make the whole world in some sort of tension, and at the same time they are always to blame for someone, but not they are
And why, for some reason, they need to create tension on our continent! And on their "island" they are not interested to do it!

New World Order does say nothing to you ?

1. https://fancybear.net/

2. and the resonant statement of the head of the IOC

"Möglicherweise. Vielleicht müsste man sich überlegen, Olympische Spiele generell ohne Flaggen durchzuführen. Heute instrumentalisieren Nationen den Sport. Dieses System verführt dazu, nachzuhelfen." (с) - Samuel Schmid https://www.watson.ch/Sport/International/227864489-Alt-Bundesrat-Schmid-zum-Russen-Doping--%C2%ABRussische-Spione-waren-in-der-Schweiz%C2%BB

3. @nikkihaley on if U.S. will send full team to Winter Olympics in South Korea: Yes, we are…the full Olympic team.
