Stalin did not play the Olympic Games, and Russia should not

The situation with the admission of Russian athletes at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea is heating up. WADA refused to reinstate the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA). The reason for this was the reluctance of the latter to recognize "state intervention in the anti-doping program and ensuring access to closed samples." The actions of the World Anti-Doping Agency, in turn, may lead to the removal of the Russian team from participation in the Olympics.

    More than $ 1 million was made by Russia's contributions to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) for 2015. This was reported to RIA Novosti by a representative of the Ministry of Finance of Russia.

    I didn’t find data on contributions to the IOC. But WADA, which craps and craps 1 lemon of greens for 2015, has salted. I do not think that in 2016 this gad desk was cheaper. Either PACE, then WADA, and that’s all - give me the money, and we will spoil am

      Kostya! We then held Goodwill Games .... And remember how many countries came to us then ... I would not go to these games out of principle. Yes, for athletes this is the meaning of life, the road to the goal, but is the price too expensive?

            I liked that Mikheev drew attention to some “incompleteness” (misunderstanding) of the Russian strategy in the development of Russian sports in foreign policy. Namely., That sport has now become a market show and has nothing to do with countries seeking peaceand not to war. Hence the political pressure of the West on Russia.
            In other words, OIs have become the scene of hostile political manipulations against Russia, which have nothing to do with the healthy lifestyle of ordinary citizens and the friendship of peoples, which OIs have historically always been called upon to serve. Moreover, now - in the context of preparing the United States and Western countries for TMV with Russia.
            In my opinion, all WADA manipulations resemble Hitler’s strategy when organizing the 1936 Olympiad in Germany, if anyone remembers the content of its preparation policy by Hitler and Co. Namely, "Germany above all!"

    And there were also the Friendship games in 1984.
    Those countries that boycotted the American Olympics organized their alternative games, they were a little later, a week or two different. They were attended not only by the athletes of these countries, but also by many others, there were also participants, and even several champions of the past Olympiad.
    And the games were also very interesting, not in one country, but in different ones: boxing in Cuba, (if not confusing) gymnastics in Czechoslovakia, rhythmic in Bulgaria, even in the DPRK there were table tennis competitions, and in Mongolia in Sambo. Hungary, East Germany, USSR, Poland. Everywhere there were competitions in some kinds of sports ... And it turned out like an Olympiad, but at the same time in several countries.

      However, do not enter the same water twice. The political situation must be taken into account. There used to be a socialist system and the Warsaw Pact. Now this is not - and this must be taken into account. Russia is likely to be alone in alternative games.

    A matter of life, but to the point ...
    God forbid you win, they’ll invent another tale about doping, they’ll pour mud over it, they’ll deprive it of a well-deserved medal, and it will be suspended for life. And at the same time they will pump up our rivals with “prohibited drugs”, but with the permission of the notorious WADA.

    Everyone is humiliated as much as he is ready to go down. The question is how much Russia can afford to fall in the eyes of the world community and can we Russians respect ourselves after that? The fuss with the Olympic Games is similar to the fuss with Eurovision - shows, money laundering, political intrigues and nothing to do with the ideals of the Olympic movement. Maybe it's time to finish participating in this booth at the state level.

    our wonderful illite will not only be humiliated to the last, but we will also be forced to kiss the western partners under the tail. No need to deceive ourselves - you can endlessly refer to the union while simultaneously pouring it with slop, But we simply do not have an alternative with such schizophrenia.

    I think Mikheev is right! You can contrast the results of our Olympians with the results of the participants of the Olympiad and make fun of the Olympians, whose results are lower than those of our athletes.

    It's not about Stalin.
    It was precisely during this time that professional (under the guise of amateur) sport was legalized, against which the early Communist revolutionaries protested in favor of mass physical culture. So participation in the Olympics was only a matter of time (which happened during the life of the leader).
    And it's not about the Olympics. It is necessary to reconsider the very attitude to sport (which has become an anti-human phenomenon). And urge this to be done by all healthy forces in the international community.
