Russian President Vladimir Putin’s 9th-dan black belt in taekwondo has been revoked because of the invasion of Ukraine. This is the latest personal punishment for Putin in addition to the international economic and sports sanctions imposed on Russia.
Citing the idea that “Peace is More Precious than Triumph”, the World Taekwondo condemned Russia’s military operations in Ukraine, saying “savage attacks on innocent lives” had violated the sport’s principles. Respect and tolerance values.
The World Taekwondo Association said in a statement, “Based on this, the World Taekwondo Association has decided to revoke the 9th-dan honorary black belt title awarded to Mr. Putin in November 2013.”
The World Taekwondo Association also said it had decided to follow the advice of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to ban Russia’s flag and national anthem from competitions.
The decision by the World Taekwondo Association comes after the International Judo Federation announced on February 27 that Putin would be suspended as honorary president and ambassador of the International Judo Federation.
Other sports organizations, including FIFA and UEFA, have also announced a ban on Russian national teams and clubs.
From time to time, Putin wears a martial arts uniform to show off his prowess, and at other well-planned events, he highlights his strongman image, such as when he has been topless on horseback or playing ice hockey.
