The UN representative is in favor of the return of Russian athletes who fought in Ukraine

The UN special rapporteur for cultural rights, Alexandra Xanthaki, who is an adviser to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), also supports the return of those Russian athletes who actively fought in the war in Ukraine. He is in favor of a broad concept of neutral status, which should only be given to perpetrators of war crimes. The IOC will discuss the issue of sanctions against athletes from Russia and allied Belarus at a meeting on Tuesday.
