Friends, Interparus is closely following the news. We have decided that no matter what, we will provide you with up-to-date information from the world of yachting! We empathize with you and say our resolute “No” to any aggression and war!
According to the statement of the International Sailing Association (ISAF), Russian and Belarusian athletes are suspended from participation in international sailing competitions! This will become part of the sanctions against the Russian Federation.
ISAF issued the following statement:
“Today, World Sailing (ISAF) has joined the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and global sports organizations. We have decided to suspend the participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes. By taking these steps, World Sailing maintains a unified and coordinated approach within the global sports movement.
“This decision is in line with the recommendation of the IOC Executive Board. It aims to preserve the integrity of the competition and ensure the safety of all participants. The recommendation was unanimously approved by ISAF.”
“Where this is not possible due to tight deadlines, organizational or legal reasons, World Sailing, in accordance with the recommendation of the IOC Executive Board, advises the organizers of the competition to do everything possible to ensure the neutral participation of Russian or Belarusian athletes (whether individual athletes or teams) without national symbols, colors, flags and anthems”.
“Our sport is united by the values of equality, inclusiveness, respect and fairness. We are now asking our big sailing family to come together… and work with us during this incredibly difficult time.”
To understand the scale of what is happening, let us turn your attention to another historical event. Switzerland for the first time since 1815 imposed any sanctions against another country. Those. both de facto and de jure violated neutrality, which was not violated even during the period of both world wars.
