The opening ceremonies are underway for the 2014 Paralympic Games in Sochi Russia.  Noticeably present is Ukraine.

SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Ukraine has decided against boycotting the Winter Paralympics in Sochi.

The head of Ukraine’s Paralympic Committee says the country’s athletes will stay and compete in Sochi despite Russia’s military moves in Crimea.

The decision was announced a few hours before Friday’s opening ceremony.

Russian news agency R-Sport quotes Valeriy Sushkevich, the president of Ukraine’s National Paralympic Committee, as saying “we are staying at the Paralympics.”

However, he adds “I don’t know to what extent the team can focus on the result now.”
