The Times reports that the British government, led by Boris Johnson, is leaning towards a boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics, which will be held from 4 to 20 February in Beijing.
Opinions in the government were divided into supporters of a complete boycott and a less radical position. It is indicated that the reason for considering such an initiative was the intention to protest against violations of human rights in the PRC. For example, Foreign Minister Liz Truss accuses the Chinese authorities of the “ genocide of the Uyghurs. ''
This is a political boycott, in which no officials will go to China, but the national team will take part in the competition. < br />
