MEP Ber on the Games in China: the wrong site in the wrong place Germany (SvDG) Nicola Ber called for a total boycott of the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing. This is reported by TASS with reference to the Funke media group.
“The European Union should not only remain in the shadow of the United States, but also stand on its hind legs in respect of human rights and speak out for a total boycott of the Winter Games,” Ber said … She added that, in her opinion, the Olympic Games in China were the wrong site in the wrong place.
“Neither the US nor the European Union can be interested in silently watching Beijing at the Winter Games as behind a gigantic propaganda staging, while the Chinese apparatus openly behind the scenes seriously violates human rights, ”said the representative of the European Parliament. She added that the diplomatic boycott is taking place late, and this is the least that can be expected from the West.
The US refusal to send officials to the Games became known on December 6. On December 8, Australia joined the diplomatic boycott of the Olympics in China. The Beijing Olympics will be held from 4 to 20 February 2022.
