You're reading: Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry and Olympic delegation upset about Ukraine ‘annexation’

on social media

More than 30
Russian Olympic athletes who were born outside Russia had their birthplaces
made to look like they were born in Russia or its federal subjects on the
official Olympic website.

Thus, Alexey
Korovashkov, who canoes for the Russian Federation, is listed as being born in
“Ukraine Region (RUS).” Other Ukraine-born athletes were listed being born
in “Lvov Region (RUS)”
or “Lutsk (RUS).”

The practice was extended to athletes born in other former Soviet
republics, to which Russia’s current foreign policy refers as its “sphere of
influence.”
