The national Paralympic team returned to Belarus from Rio on September 22. A cake with two flags (Belarusian and Russian) had been made for them. Nastassya Hralovich has published the photo on Facebook.

The Russian national team was suspended from the Paralympics on suspicion of doping usage. Belarusian sports functionary Alyaksei Fomachkin hoisted a Russian flag at the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games in Rio. He was deprived of accreditation for the political demonstration.
