Lukashenko urges Olympic assembly to complete reforms in sport

MINSK, 22 May (BelTA) – The Olympic assembly, which will be convened on 30 May, should complete the reforms in sport, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during a working meeting with Head of the Belarus President Administration Natalia Kochanova on 22 May, BelTA has learned.

“When can we expect to finish the reforms in sport, especially in the field of personnel management in the federations, state bodies and the ministry, going to be over? I would like this process to be completed by 30 May when, as I understand, the Olympic assembly is convened,” the head of state said.

The president gave instructions to prepare an in-depth and comprehensive analysis of the processes happening in sport by the beginning of this large-scale event.

“I want you to supervise this issue because it is the main ideological issue. We have never made a secret of this. Sport is ideology,” Alexander Lukashenko said. “Millions watch sports competitions. This has an influence on people. If a team performs badly, this spoils the mood of people. If a team does well, this inspires people,” the president noted.
