Ukraine boycotts Ulaanbaatar Grand Slam protesting Russians’ participation

Ukrainian judokas refused to participate in the international Grand Slam tournament in Ulaanbaatar if Russian athletes were allowed to compete in.

The tournament will be held from 24 to 26 June. Earlier it became known that the Russians will take part in it as neutral athletes. The International Judo Federation (IJF) announced its decision to allow Russian and Belarusian athletes to the next Grand Slam tournament in Ulaanbaatar. Representatives of the aggressor countries will be able to compete in Mongolia on the terms of neutrality, without using the anthems and flags of their states.

Mikhail Koshlyak, President of the Judo Federation of Ukraine, reacted to the decision of the governing body. According to him, in response to the decision of the IJF, Ukrainian judokas may refuse to participate in international competitions.

A total of 276 judokas from 29 countries will compete in Ulaanbaatar.
