I feel like the ban on Russian athletes has less to do with the drug users than it is anti-Russian sentiment.

 

Obviously. Just the petty and vile revenge for Ukraine and Syria. Doping? Don't make me laugh... yes, i can admit that Russians using doping too, but no more than US team, where nearly every athlete (433 of 450 doping tests, to be exact) is seriously ill and using doping "for medical reasons", with full permission of WADA.

 

As for "serious proofs", this is no more than opinion (well paid opinion, i can add) of one single person with no any material evidence. No any normal court would accept this. But since this all is about Russia, and to Western world Russians are new rogues and pariahs, everything is clear: the WADA report is full of phrases like "we can not confirm this, for obvious reasons, but this is clear that..." Such thing as presumption of innocence is not applicable too. All Russian sportsmen are now considered "dirty" by default and each of them should then individually prove that he, unlike other Russians, is "clean". And even if he somehow managed to prove this, he's still not allowed to compete under national flag and there is no any guarantees that his rewards will not be taken away one of two years later, for some new political reason.

 

And you know what? Go to hell with such "Olympic spirit". To me, this spirit is long dead. You, westerners, are the real antipode of king Midas, you're turning everything you touch into dirt and shit. Are you want to have your own puppet sport-related inquisition, to expell all the serious competitors (China will be next target, i suppose, the "investigation" already started and follows 100% the same scheme), to compete only with Latvia and Yemen? Excellent, good luck down this road! But everyone, including you yourselves, will know the REAL price of your records and medals.

 

As for Russia, there is good saying: whatever doesn't kill us, makes us stronger. Obviously, this vile slap will not kill us, but we (i mean exactly Russian people, not Putin with his team of oligarchs) will remember these slaps, for generations ahead.

At 2 p.m. on some "forum of volunteers", Putin going to voice his decision about Olympic ban. And so far, it seems Ramzan kadyrov is the only true Russian among our "elite":

"No one Chechen sportsman will compete under "neutral" banner. And those who should have been (go to the Olympics, but were banned), we will honor them as winners."

 

Perhaps, the words of future president of Russia (from 2024 to 2036, and maybe later). Among other things, Western vileness and hostility accelerated the formation of what is called "political nation". Just 10 years ago, it was impossible to imagine the Chechen being Russian president. And today, he's gaining popularity even among Russian nationalists. Frankly, i'd not mind to vote for him too, if only to see the terrified faces of our "western partners". With Kadyrov, they will miss Putin.

Russia looks to prospect of future without Vladimir as sources say he has considered quitting
Source: The Independent

 

^ LOL

 

Once agan, Putin announced his candidacy for elections - 2018. This time, IMHO, he could not choose the day worse. Usual pre-election rhetorics like "let's move forward, no one will stop us!" sounded especially hollow and grotesque after the olypmpic humiliation happened just ONE DAY ago. The crowd of enthusiastic girls can not owershadow the fact that he seriously insulted the Russian patriotic majority when agreed with IOC and did NOT declared boycott of olympics. Here, in Russia, such things matters. And the very alarming bell is that, as it seems, Putin no longer understands this.

 

Exactly THIS, and not protests of "liberal community and gay-activists" or pathetic rallies of mr.Navalny, may become the beginning of his fall.

This is amazing! Michael McFaul, the former US ambassador in Russia, giving us the sincere and friendly advice:

 

"If you want the Russian team to participate in the next Olympics - vote against Putin."

 

...but, nevertheless, some people are still think this all is about doping.

Winter Olympics have not yet started, but we already have the first winner. Russian skier and olympic champion Nikita Kryukov refused to patricipate under "neutral" flag. The bad part of this news is that all the others have agreed. Between national dignity and career they preferred career. Suicidal decision, even from purely practical point of view. Their betrayial and their white flag will not protect them from further baiting, and their few medals will be quickly and easily taken away after some new "investigation". In the eyes of West they're still "dirty Russians", but in the eyes of Russia, they're already "dirty traitors" and "whiteflagers".

 

Rephrasing Churchill: "You were given the choice between honor and career. You have lost your honor, and you will destroy your careers."
