Lukashenko: for us, Olympics in China is a guarantee that sport will remain a sport

The President stated this today during his annual Address to the Belarusian People and National Assembly


Aleksandr Lukashenko said, “Unfortunately, the sport of high achievements is now poisoned by politics. The boycott of the upcoming Olympics brings the world back to the Cold War realities. For us, the Olympics in China is, on the contrary, a guarantee that sport will remain a sport, and that our athletes will be able to compete without pressure and political intrigues. Our dear athletes, the whole country will support you. When performing at the competitions, each of you should understand that the hearts of all Belarusians are with you. More than ever, society now needs real heroes, patriots of their native land.”
