Climate: from extreme weather already irreversible impacts (ANSA)

(ANSA) – ROME, MARCH 01 – “The world is horrified by what Russia has done, aided and abetted by Belarus. World leaders have tried to avoid this invasion by diplomatic means, but to no avail given Russia’s unshakable intention to invade Ukraine. The unprecedented sanctions imposed on Russia and Belarus by countries and industries around the world appear to be the only peaceful way to disrupt and disable Russia’s current intentions and restore peace, “said the president of World Athletics Sebastian Coe in a speech to the Council. .

“Those who know me will understand that imposing sanctions on athletes for the actions of their government goes against the grain – he added – I lashed out against the practice of politicians who target athletes and sport to score political points when other sectors continue to deal with their business. This is different as governments, businesses and other international organizations have imposed sanctions and measures against Russia in all areas. Sport must step up and join these efforts to end this war and restore peace. We cannot and we must not do without it “. (HANDLE).
