IOC suspends Russians for breaching charter

[ad_1]

MUMBAI, India — The Russian Olympic Committee was suspended by the IOC on Thursday for breaching the Olympic Charter by incorporating sports bodies in four regions in eastern Ukraine.

IOC spokesman Mark Adams said the move by the Russian Olympic Committee on Oct. 5 violated the territorial integrity of the Ukrainian Olympic body.

Adams said the suspension has not yet affected the possibility of neutral Russian athletes competing at next year’s Paris Olympics.
