The Olympic Meeting, held by the Olympic Committee of Russia, supported Russian athletes who want to take part in the 2018 Games under a neutral flag.
The committee will assist athletes in resolving organizational, financial and technical issues related to their participation in competitions. At the same time, in order to go to the Olympics, athletes will have to receive invitations from the IOC.
In the Kremlin, the decision of the Olympic Assembly was supported. A spokesman for the head of state, Dmitry Peskov, recalled that earlier Vladimir Putin had declared that no one should obstruct those Russian athletes who want to speak at the Olympics.
