5:32 am on 5 March 2014

Ukraine's Paralympic team will boycott the Games in Sochi if Russian forces don't leave the Crimean peninsula in the next two days.

Ukraine's 31-athletes and officials in Sochi have been distressed by the events back home, and a team official says they'll boycott the Games unless Russian troops aren't withdrawn from Ukraine before the opening on Saturday morning.
