President of the International Biathlon Union (IBU) Olle Dahlin explained why the executive committee of the organization decided to extend the sanctions against Russian and Belarusian athletes. It is reported by “Match TV”.

“Since the situation in Ukraine has not improved, the position of the IBU Executive Committee remains the same,” said Dahlin. The decision to extend the suspension of Russians and Belarusians from international starts was made earlier on Monday, August 16.

On April 5, the head of the Russian Biathlon Union (RBU) Viktor Maigurov assessed the prospects for changing sports citizenship by the leaders of the national team. He stated that the organization does not expect this from the team leaders due to the IBU sanctions.
