    IOC members from Russia will be checked for involvement in the armed forces

    Published on

    The Ethics Committee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will check the members of this organization – President of the Russian Tennis Federation Shamil Tarpishchev and two-time Olympic pole vault champion Yelena Isinbayeva – for their involvement in the armed forces of the Russian Federation, IOC Communications Director Mark Adams said after the two-day meeting Executive Committee of the IOC, which was held in Lausanne. According to Mr. Adams, such actions will be taken in order to “avoid the use of different approaches in relation to athletes, officials from Russia and members of the IOC from this country.” The IOC Ethics Commission will check whether two of the conditions contained in the IOC recommendations are met – lack of active support for hostilities and contractual obligations with military structures. In this case, only the period after February 24, 2022 will be taken into account.
