Minister of Sports of Ukraine and President of the National Fencing Federation of Ukraine Vadym Gutzeit called on the International Fencing Federation (FIE) to make an appeal regarding the participation of Russian athletes in competitions. His words are quoted by Inside The Games.

Gutzeit urged the FIE not to involve Russians before tournaments. “We call on the FIE to follow the recommendations of the International Olympic Committee to prevent Russian and Belarusian athletes from participating in official competitions even under the FIE flag,” he said.

Earlier, Gutzeit announced that local athletes would boycott tournaments with the participation of Russians and Belarusians. The decision was announced at a meeting with all-Ukrainian federations of Olympic and non-Olympic sports.
