Well before the start of Wimbledon, the All England Tennis Club withdrew all players from Russia and Belarus from the right to play. A native of Russia has now won the women’s singles competition of this year’s Wimbledon tournament – that triggers clear reactions.

According to British sports journalist Sam Street, Britain’s “worst nightmare” is about to come true. In Jelena Rybakina, a native Russian wins the women’s competition at Wimbledon. The result: The British royal family, in the form of Duchess Kate Middleton, presented the athlete from Russia with the venerable Grand Slam trophy.

A scene that was also suddenly commented on from Russia. After Rybakina’s final triumph, Shamil Tarpishchev, President of the Russian Tennis Federation, spoke to the Russian state media: “That’s so great! Well done Rybakina! We won Wimbledon.”

Short, clear, compact

Actually, no athletes from Russia or Belarus were allowed to compete this year – as a reaction to the Russian attack on Ukraine, all players from the respective countries were revoked the right to compete. But with Rybakina, a Moscow-born player has now won the tournament. The 23-year-old was only allowed to compete because she has also had Kazakh citizenship since 2018.

With a cartoon-like poster, Putin wants to recruit young people for the army. The statement: Anyone who decides to join the secret service can live a much better life than a civilian. While military service is portrayed as a brilliant way of life, the civilian is portrayed as an overweight alcoholic.
