Dmitri Aliev, Makar Ignatov and other figure skaters received summons to the military registration
According to Match TV, two active Russian figure skaters Dmitri Aliev and Makar Ignatov received summons to the military registration and enlistment office.
Aliev is 23 years old, Ignatov is 22.
On September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of partial mobilization in the country.
Also two-time Olympic champion in biathlon and adviser to the Minister of Sports Anna Bogaliy spoke about the preparation of a mobilization reservation system for professional athletes.
“As far as I know, the Ministry of Sports is working to ensure that mobilization does not affect professional athletes.
A certain reservation system is being developed now.”
Also a comment from sport-express journalist Dmitri Kuznetsov:
“In St. Petersburg, it’s a really bad situation with summons, in general. Aliev, Ignatov, Alioshin, Cheloshkin, others, as far as I know. Of course, there is no mood to train in such conditions. As far as I know, the federation is working on booking the national team skaters. But 1) we don’t have everyone in the national team; 2) if this is not done, then I don’t know how people will train, and not leave St. Petersburg / Moscow.
According to Match TV, the FFKR requested a delay for both. There were no more summons for figure skaters.”
And a comment from Alexei Mishin about situation in his group: I haven’t heard that any of my skaters received a summon. We are monitoring this process. No one in my group received a summon. I can definitely say that.
The verdict on Valieva’s case will be announced in October. The investigation was carried out in relation to the personnel of the athlete, including the coaching staff.
