Questions for discussion:

  • Russian propaganda in sports using the example of gymnastics (presentation of the article “vaulting into politics: the evolution of Russian gymnastics as a political tool of propaganda”)
  • How did Russia use international competitions to create an image of great-power?
  • The history of sports competition between the Russian Federation and Ukraine in the context of political confrontation.
  • Can the thesis “sport outside of politics” pave the way for the rehabilitation of Russia in international sports associations?
