Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee for Physical Culture and Sports Anton Shipulin told that he would not like athletes of national teams, who trained at the expense of budgetary funds, to join the national teams of other countries, so it is important to stimulate them more financially.
Russian Deputy Sports Minister Alexei Morozov told on Wednesday that the department plans to introduce the concept of “golden hundred” among leading Russian athletes with decent salaries in order to limit the change of sports citizenship .
— This is one of the most urgent questions, although all the questions discussed in the working groups were relevant. Under current conditions, we understand that athletes are not receiving the funds they received several years ago. Athletes and coaches must be stimulated. I really liked that the Ministry of Sports is working on this issue and plans to increase salaries up to 200 thousand rubles. It’s a good incentive for national team athletes. In addition, the payment procedure for the Friendship Games has been determined, it will be the same as for the Olympic Games. This is great, but we need to think about additional stimulation for athletes who now cannot travel to international competitions. Nevertheless, the Ministry of Sports is constantly working on this, and it is very important to convey this information to athletes so that they do not think about changing their citizenship and do not go to other countries. We would not want athletes who trained with us at the expense of budgetary funds to go to other countries to participate in international competitions, ”Shipulin told .
