On brand for current Russian narratives: Ukraine isn't a country, its people, culture and language do not exist, all are really Russians in denial and will be either re-educated or exterminated, this tennis player is a nobody, a non-thing, doesn't exist.

It's pathological in its Orwellian overtones.

Don't get your knickers in a twist reacting to this, fellow board members. Everything that Russian officials say is meant for the Russian public to consume in order to maintain the "Russia good, West bad" spirit. For the same reason I skip the news stories where Lavrov utters some crap as it has no element of news to it, just war propaganda to justify keeping his own nation suffering

He didn’t lie! Svitolina, who? We know her but most of the world don’t and will not read her posts. Nadal, Djokovic and more have defended Russian players right to play. That’s all that matters.

This is another proof that supporting Russian players means supporting Russian politicians and sport including tennis there is directly linked with politics.
And some are surprised and are even bashing Ukrainian players how they behave, you can see that those posters are saying in similar way as Russian politicians.

Banning Tarpishev by WTA is nothing, because he's still on his job, Russian Tennis Federation did zero when he made racist statements towards Serena and Venus. Those are another unacceptable words, whole RTS should be banned with their players.

Irrelevant.

Tarpischev is already taken care of (already banned by WTA and the rest of tennis since long time ago), which is why he feels free to run his mouth off here.
