MOSCOW, January 11. /TASS/. Any discrimination in sport based on unfounded accusations undermines the Olympic principles, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, Konstantin Dolgov, said on Wednesday.
"We are absolutely against any discrimination and politicizing in sport, in particular towards Russian athletes," Dolgov said. "Any discrimination and unfounded actions based on unproven accusations are unacceptable and undermine the Olympic principles."
"It is unacceptable to harm clean athletes who fairly train and have the right to expect adequate recognition of their contribution in the international sports movement," the diplomat added.
Leaders of 19 National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADO) urged late on Tuesday to ban Russian athletes from all international sports competitions as well as to strip the country of the right of hosting global tournaments.
