The Olympic flame is one of the main symbols of the Olympic Games. The revival of the fire-making tradition took place on the eve of the 1928 Games in Amsterdam. During the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, the Olympic torch relay was held for the first time.

At the end of February 2022, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) issued a call to international sports federations and recommended that Russian and Belarusian athletes not be allowed to participate in any competitions.

To participate in the Games, Russian athletes will need to sign updated conditions of participation, which include a commitment to respect the Olympic Charter, including the “peaceful mission of the Olympic movement.” Athletes from Russia and Belarus will not compete in the medal count.

Previously in Russia It is called possible Ceasefire for the duration of the Olympics.
