“Russia has no intention of isolating itself from world sport” – Matytsin

Minister of Sports Oleg Matytsin During the session “Sport in the Far East: Creating New Opportunities” of the Eastern Economic Forum, he spoke about the development of sporting events in the country under sanctions.

— Staff training is a fundamental element in the Far East. We must not forget the potential of sports diplomacy. We invite you here, we are negotiating with colleagues from BRICS and SCO countries to organize competitions and bilateral meetings here. Use as much as possible all the formats of participation of our athletes and respect for the basic principles of Olympism. We are not isolated.

For the first time in 30 years, we have restored the Spartakiad movement, a very important incentive for the development and popularization of this system is the creation of a competitive environment. We will hold them every four years. The government has also decided on financial incentives not only for athletes, but also for coaches. I think the president will support the idea of ​​additional thanks to the athletes for participating and winning these competitions,” Matytsin said.
