 "Zhan Beleniuk deserved Olympic gold, it has been stolen from him," - Sports Minister Zhdanov. PHOTO

Zhan Beleniuk was fleeced in the Olympic Games final of Greco-Roman style wrestling in the weight category of up to 85 kg, where he competed against Russia's Davit Chakvetadze.

Ukraine's Sports and Youth Minister Ihor Zhdanov wrote on his Facebook page, Censor.NET informs.

"I think that Zhan Beleniuk deserved a gold medal at the Olympics, and it had been stolen from him. This is what I told him over the phone after the fight ended. For us, Zhan Beleniuk is a real champion! What had been stolen in an unfair competition cannot be deemed a victory at the Olympics," Zhdanov wrote.

The minister thanked Beleniuk for his brilliant performance at the Olympics in Rio, and praised the efforts of the team's coach Artur Dzihasov.

"Thank you! We are so proud of you! You are the best!" the minister noted.
