The Russian invasion of Ukraine continues unabated. Disturbing videos continue to circulate, but despite this, opinions abound that the country could return to the sporting scene. Fortunately, there are plenty of critics among us, including coach Josef Csaplár. He has also taken a swipe at the Licka brothers, who train in Russia.
Since the outbreak of war in Ukraine, we have also seen major changes in the field of sport. Many of them have excluded Russian teams or athletes because their management does not like the way Russia spreads propaganda through sport.
There is now talk of a possible return, and this is already at the Olympic Games. However, there are also a large number of opponents of this idea, including coach Josef Csaplár.
“For me, for example, the decision of the Lick brothers, who train in Orenburg, Russia, is completely unacceptable. I see it as a failure of ethical values that they operate in a country whose soldiers murder children, rape women and torture people.
A medieval rag. And we will applaud the Russian and Belarusian athletes at the Olympics or other sporting events for winning something, ” Csaplár said in an interview with Sport.cz.
Marcel Licka has been coaching Russian Orenburg since 2020 and previously worked in Belarus. He brought in his brother Mario as an assistant in the winter, and the club recently exercised his option for another season.
The Lick brothers have been widely criticised for their involvement in Russia, but both can defend it in their own minds. This is an excerpt from an interview with Marcel published by iRozhlas last July.
“If I wanted to leave, I don’t think the club would give me problems. There were different ideas in this direction, I consulted with people from the Czech Republic and abroad. More or less everyone agreed. They said: ‘If you go back to the Czech Republic, will it change anything with the situation in Ukraine?
It won’t. These are things that a few people can change, but you certainly won’t.’ As far as my profession and career is concerned, to leave the Russian Premier League would be stupid.”
Mario was a little more conciliatory, he told the Daily earlier this month. “I can look at myself in the mirror, although I can understand people who look at it differently.”
