Note that this is not the first time that Zelensky has announced the intentions to fight for Ukraine's participation in the Olympics. So, in 2019, the president announced the need to finance facilities for the Olympics.

Last September, Minister of Youth and Sports of Ukraine Vadym Gutsait said that President Volodymyr Zelensky instructed him to start preparing the country for the Olympics. And the head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak said that Ukraine plans to participate in the competition to host the Olympic Games in 2028 or 2030.
