SOCHI, February 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine's Olympics athletes in Sochi are calling on citizens to stop the violence in Kiev, national Olympic committee head Sergey Bubka said on his website on Wednesday.
“I am horrified by what is happening in my home country,” he said. “And it is especially sad that this violence takes place during the Olympic Games, which are considered to be the most peaceful and democratic event in the world.
“I am calling on all participants in the Ukrainian conflict to start negotiating for a truce,” Bubka said. “I ask all those who are involved in the conflict to stop violence, which is driving Ukraine to the brink of catastrophe.”
“I am in Sochi at the moment and I know that all Ukrainian athletes participating in the 2014 Olympics support my call,” he added. “There is still a chance for peaceful settlement of the conflict. Let’s start with the Olympic truce just now for the sake of our common future.”
