"For a long time we’ve experienced attempts by the United States to put pressure on international sports organizations. This pressure has nothing in common with the ideology of the Olympic movement," he said.
Ryabkov has described pressure in sports as part of Washington’s destructive policies towards Moscow.

"It is one of the elements of destructive policies Washington conducts towards Russia. It merely increases the impression that the US side fails to opt for normalization in the Russia-US dialog," he told TASS in the wake of the International Olympic Committee’s decision regarding the Russian team.

Moscow is against dirty political tricks in sports and it hopes that the same attitude will eventually prevail in Washington, he said.
