Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, Olympic champion Svetlana Jourova in a conversation with a correspondent, she said that she was surprised by the transfer of Russian speed skater Vladimir Semirunniy to the Polish national team.
Semirunniy told on Monday that he had informed the Russian Skating Union of his desire to compete for the Polish national team. The skater is already in Poland. The 20-year-old athlete started cycling training before the season and working out in the gym.
— This is the first time anyone has visited Poland. In our country, no one has left the federation. I’m surprised that in this form anyone wants to go anywhere. Maybe he left because of the Polish coach, who worked in Russia for a long time, Zhurova told .
The International Skating Union (ISU) previously confirmed the suspension of Russian athletes from tournaments under its auspices due to the situation in Ukraine.
