Zelenskyy -- "The War Monger"

Should Olympic competition ban athletes from belligerent nations? Europeans have been murderous colonizers - how long should they be punished? The Vietnam War was widely condemned - should dirty wars stop US Olympians? What of UK fight for distant Falkland colony / Malvinas, or the murderous Troubles in Ireland? Make time for truce. 

The Ukraine is pressing the Olympic movement to ban Russian & Belarus athletes or face boycott.

Media is shaping decisions! Wars are not new. Olympic truce promotes peace.

Sport & art are ways talent can blossom, potentially providing a path for emigration (defection). It's wrong to punish all people born under a violent government.
