Russian biathletes at the 2021 World Cup in Pokljuka, Slovenia were banned from publishing the country's flag and coat of arms on social networks.
The ban also applies to coaches and team specialists.
The Russian national team at the 2021 World Cup will perform without a flag and anthem due to the sanctions of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
The International Biathlon Union (IBU) noted that members of the Russian team could be warned for publishing images of state symbols on social networks.
World Cup 2021 in Pokljuka starts on February 10.
WADA requires that the line-up for the Biathlon World Cup be agreed with them. Why is that? Is Loginov under attack?
