The President of the biathlon Federation of Ukraine Volodymyr Brynzak has shared his opinion regarding the use of doping Russian athletes. Athletes from many countries often talk about doping in Russia. But Ukraine has taken a neutral position.
Brynzak claims that Russia is not only bad people, and there are also normal athletes and fans who support the Ukrainians.
My position is that Russia is not only bad and negative people. I’m not for it. There are normal athletes whom we know and communicate. When you come to Kontiolahti, there are a lot of Russian fans who genuinely support our athletes.
We support the idea that we should Boo and ridicule the Russians. But if they are normal people, then why do it? Anyway we will reconcile and will live peacefully,
– project Manager brynzak said in an interview Tribunа.com.
However, the President of the biathlon Federation is confident that Russia has problem with doping, as in Ukraine.
Of course there is. It’s no secret. And we had, though not at the official level. The same Sergey Sednev (Sport 24) he violated anti-doping rules, when I saw the results of his fall. Problems with Russian doping let versed professionals. If found guilty, then he will be punished
– concluded project Manager brynzak.
He also cited the example of Olga Abramova, which was accused of doping, but she won the case.
We saw that it had violated anti-doping rules – hired lawyers for their money, which was won for us by the court. She was acquitted of charges of doping, this is the first time in biathlon is someone able to do. Russia has never fought for their athletes,
– said the head of the FBI.
