“There will be bias, persecution”: Olympic champion – about changing citizenship


St. PETERSBURG, Sep 16, Dmitry Edigarev. Biathlon Federation President St. Petersburg, two-time Olympic champion Dmitry Vasilyev said that he sees no point in changing sports citizenship. Earlier, President of the Russian Biathlon Union (RBU) Viktor Maigurov said that not a single Russian biathlete is considering changing sports citizenship due to suspension from international competitions. “I think that the president of the RRF has objective information. Most likely, it is true. But I don’t understand now the change of citizenship. This is not very relevant, because any athlete who left will still be treated as a Russian. There will be bias, persecution and even humiliation,” Vasiliev said. Vasiliev also noted that in St. Petersburg there was a case of serving a summons to the military commissar to an athlete, which was later withdrawn. “We had a case, but there was an erroneous agenda. About Dean is an athlete who is a full-time student. But he presented a certificate of study at the institute. The summons was withdrawn,” Vasiliev added.
