The official statement to the International Olympic Committee
EBP has issued an official statement to the International Olympic Committee.
"Pierre de Coubertin the founder of the modern Olympic movement spent his entire life on creating an ultimate concept of World peace and human integration via means of sport. His iconic "Ode to Sport" begins from the phrase "O Sport, You are Peace!". Today, it is painful to see how in front of the eyes of the whole world the forthcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro are quickly becoming a dirty playing field for hidden political agendas!
Those who have generated unfounded, diplomatic accusations and economic sanctions against Russia have been employing new methods to continue the segregation of the Russian nation from the rest of the World. A baseless attempt to discredit and further remove an athletic Russian Olympic team from the Olympic Games in Rio is a clear example of using sport as a tool of political pressure.
In troubling times when political disagreements are settled by ways of military actions more than ever, we call on the entire sporting nation to protect the purity of the Olympic principals from political contamination. This should be done via fair judging and refereeing to protect the Olympic fire from being turned into a symbol of double standards and narcissistic projections of inequality between the nations.
We call on the International Olympic Committee for professional governance via integrity, fairness and conscience".
