Ukraine has joined Georgia in requesting corrections from London Olympic organizers to some athlete biographies that erroneously list their birthplaces as Russia.
Foreign Minister Kostyantyn Gryshchenko said he had asked the Ukrainian ambassador to Britain to request changes.
The problem applies to at least 10 athletes on the Russian Olympic team who were born in different parts of the former Soviet Union.
