Pozdnyakov: calls to disband the ROC would definitely be appreciated by the IOC
MOSCOW, September 15 – Some people’s representatives sometimes lose touch with reality and engage in substitution of facts; calls to disband the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) would definitely be most appreciated by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), said the head of the ROC Stanislav Pozdnyakov.
Earlier on Thursday, the head of the party “A Just Russia – for Truth” Sergei Mironov spoke on the party’s official website with a proposal to disband the ROC and create a new structure on its basis, since in its current form the organization has no future.
“But about the fact that we need people who are ready to adequately perceive new realities and new prospects, I completely agree with Sergei Mironov. It is alarming when one of the leading, original parties loses votes, its positions and risks becoming a structure without a future. Here “, apparently, reforms and fresh ideas are really needed. After all, it is also true that a holy place is never empty,” added the head of the ROC.
