The International Olympic Committee wants to allow athletes from Russia and Belarus to participate in the July and August Olympic Games as neutral athletes under strict conditions.

Russian President Vladimir Putin declared on Monday night that he is in favor of a ceasefire during the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris, writes DPA.

During the weekend, French President Emmanuel Macron confirmed in an interview for Ukrainian television that Paris wants to call on Moscow to agree to a cease-fire for the duration of the games, DPA reminds. The Olympics will take place from July 26 to August 11.

At a press conference on Monday night, Putin said that he had not heard of such a proposal from President Macron until then. “In any case, we will always be based on the interests of Russia and the situation on the battlefield,” said the head of the Kremlin.
