Russians were allowed to play at the Australian Open…
Tennis Australia decided to allow players from Russia and Belarus to participate in the Australian Open under a neutral flag. What caused a flurry of negative comments.
Ukraine's Ambassador to Australia Vasily Miroshnichenko urged the Australian Open not to allow Russian tennis players to participate in the tournament even under a neutral flag.
“It does not matter what flag they are under yes, it's a flag stained with Ukrainian blood”, — said Vasily Miroshnichenko.
According to him, it is important for the Russian authorities that its athletes continue to compete in international tournaments. And even the neutral status does not change the fact that this is a Russian athlete.
