No need to discuss boycotting Paralympics

The Ukrainian team wants to stay away from the Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, which kick off on Friday. But people are wrong to urge all the teams to boycott the Paralympics because of the Crimea crisis, the German public radio station Deutschlandfunk writes: "A discussion about boycotting the Olympic Games would probably have been more half-hearted. In any event, at least we have the consolation that by holding the Paralympics, Sochi will stage a comparatively socially relevant event. Because 34 years ago, when the Moscow Olympics were boycotted in 1980, the Paralympics didn't take place in Russia but in the Netherlands. The Soviet explanation: there are no disabled people here."
