One of the members of the Belarusian national Paralympic team came out with the Russian flag during the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games at the stadium "Maracana" in Rio de Janeiro last night, reported by the Mirror.
The article suggests that that was the way the man expressed his support for the Russian national team, which was suspended from the Paralympics due to the doping scandal involving athletes of Olympic team of the Russian Federation.
The athlete with the Russian flag made about a quarter of the circle of the stadium, when the flag was confiscated by officials, who are now working to identify the offender, reported by the BBC.
As it was reported earlier, the entire Russian team was suspended from participation in the Paralympics 2016. The Paralympic Committee of Russia said that the decision of the International Paralympic Committee on suspending Russian athletes is applied not only to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, but also for the Olympics in 2018.
