“It is unlikely that ISU will take this measure (proposed by Eteri Tutberidze not to gove rating and titles in the absence of Russian skaters – ed.), but you can turn to athletes, say: “Yes, we don’t want to compete without Russians.”

Then everything depends on how much the athletes themselves adhere to sports principles, whether politicians put pressure on them. Still, they want to represent their countries, they can be banned for supporting Russia, you need to have special courage here.

I’m afraid that in figure skating and speed skating it will hardly be like in tennis, but you can call for support, to allow Russians.” Zhurova said
