SOCHI, February 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian athletes display an example of unity as they continue performing at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia’s Sochi, despite a new wave of violent anti-government protests in their country, a spokesman for the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said on Thursday.
A new wave of anti-government protests engulfed Ukraine’s capital of Kiev on Tuesday leaving at least 28 people killed and hundreds injured as a result of clashes between protesters and law enforcers.
IOC Director of Communications Mark Adams said the Ukrainian Olympic team decided not to leave Sochi and complete their participation in the Winter Games, which run through February 23.
Adams added that Sergei Bubka, world’s legendary pole-vaulter and the head of the Ukrainian delegation to Sochi, had confirmed the intention of his team to carry on with the Olympic participation.
A total of 43 Ukrainian athletes are competing in various sports events at the Sochi Olympics. Biathlete Vita Semerenko already brought Ukraine bronze medal in women’s 7.5 km sprint.
