Belarus hockey team not likely to replace Russia at 2018 Olympics

Russian athletes can compete at the Winter Olympics in 2018 in Pyeongchang under a neutral flag. This decision was supported by the Olympic Assembly of the Russian Olympic Committee on December 12.

By the way, the decision was adopted unanimously.

A week ago, the International Olympic Committee decided to remove Russia from the 2018 Olympics in connection with the doping scandal.

The IOC has allowed Russian athletes who are not involved in the scandal to participate in the Games under a neutral flag.
