Brilliantova: CAS did not present arguments after the removal of the Russian team


KEMEROVO, Sep 29, Sergey Smyshlyaev. Decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on the suit of the Russian Football Union (RFU) does not contain any legal references and arguments, said Alexandra Brilliantova, head of the legal department of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC), at the forum “Russia is a sports power”. Previously, the International Football Federation (FIFA) and the Union of European Football Associations ( UEFA) published a joint statement according to which Russian national teams and clubs are suspended from participation in all international competitions for an indefinite period. In mid-July, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) rejected appeals against this decision. “Our illusions were shattered when the CAS decision was made on a lawsuit from the RFU. When all the same UEFA and FIFA decisions on the non-admission of our athletes and the national team were upheld “On the eve of the World Cup and the start of the qualification for the European Championship 2024. There are no legal references and arguments. “The participation of Russian football players threatens the integrity of football sports competitions.” This is a cover and replacement of law with these faceless formulations. In what way do our football players pose a threat? Exactly like biathletes , athletes, etc. Such wording can cover up any illegal decisions, and international sports jurisdictions use this quite widely,” Brilliantova said.
