Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia will do everything to protect the Paralympic athletes, who were expelled from the International Committee (IPC) the day before. These words of the official caused a real trolling from the fans, who called him a “generator of random phrases.”
“Everything that can be done, and everything that needs to be done, even more than that, will be done. Because – President Putin has repeatedly said this – protecting the rights and interests of our Paralympians, in fact, like Olympians, is one of priorities of our state, ” the R-Sport propaganda news agency quotes Peskov.
Readers of the popular portal Sports.ru called Putin’s press secretary an outright liar. They reminded him that the Russian state had done nothing to protect the athletes.
“Yes, everything has been clear with you for a long time. Your place is in The Hague”, “Unfortunate those people whom our state undertakes to “protect”, “You are doing well, guys, keep it up!”, “Does he understand exactly the meaning of the word “protection”?” , “Some show-offs are clumsy! They can’t do anything, from the word at all”, “Random phrase generator”, “The mere sight of this chela and his boss makes me sick,” they write in the comments.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, on November 15, the President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Thomas Bach , advocated the participation in the Olympics of athletes from countries that “are in a state of confrontation or war.”
