Ukrainian boxer Death: Russian Invasion- Olympic medalist from 2018 dies after the violent tiff between Ukraine and Russia
Since Russia’s full-scale invasion in February of last year, a number of Ukrainian athletes have lost their lives in combat, including Galinichev.
Due to the presence of boxers from Belarus and Russia, the Boxing Federation of Ukraine (FBU) declined to send competitors to the IBA Women’s World Championships held here. Due to the conflict in Ukraine, an international competition for Russian and Belarusian athletes has been mostly suspended. However, the International Olympic Committee is considering re-admitting them as neutrals.
The decision has angered Ukrainians, who have threatened to skip the 2024 Olympics in Paris if competitors from Russia and Belarus are allowed to compete.
