A year later, this atmosphere has returned to bite, this time in sports.

The Russian Federation has paid 170,000 Euros to Ukraine, for the change of citizenship of some Crimean athletes that was to be for the yellow-blue team of Ukraine.


Now Vera Rebrik, Rustem Dremdzhi, Aleksey Sokirskiy, Valeriya Mara, Ruslan Perestyuk, Yevgeniy Semenenko e Alena Belyakova will compete under the Russian eagle symbol, in agreement. of course, with the IAAF.

With over 170,000 euros gained, the  Ukraine Federation will try to carry on the project of training its athletes in official competitions. 20% of the amount will be dedicated to theCrimean  athletes still with Ukrainian citizenship.
