The US wants a ban on the flags, coats of arms and anthems of Russia and Belarus at international sports events.
APA reports that this was stated by the press secretary of the White House, Karine Jean-Pye.
According to him, even if sports organizations and the International Olympic Committee allow the participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes, this should be prevented.
"The use of the official state flags, coats of arms and anthems of Russia and Belarus should also be prohibited," it was said.
It was reported earlier that the International Olympic Committee will not consider the option of allowing Russian athletes to compete with the national flag and anthem.
