Russia has been banned from the upcoming Olympics.
It has to do with a doping scandal Russia was involved in: it was proven, the International Olympics Committee found a widespread culture of Russian athletes cheating.
Using performance enhancing drugs - needless to say they're illegal...
Nevertheless, Putin says Russian athletes won't boycot the Olympics. They'll be there, in full force, they just won't be awarded any medals - no matter the quality of their performance...
That's the punishment for being so familiar with performance-enhancing drugs.
The All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company stated that if Russia was banned from actually competing in the Olympics they refuse to broadcast the event happening in South Korea next year.
Is this unfair to those Russian athletes who actually put in the effort and did everything by the book? Of course it's unfair!
But with these kinds of regimes...all people pay for the sins of the many...or even the few...
What do you think of all of this? Is it fair? Unfair?
Should they just have tested
