Travel of athletes from the DFO in Russia must be financed from the federal budget - Fetisov

Trips of athletes from the Far Eastern Federal District for competitions in Russia must be financed from the federal budget. According to the press service of the Primorsky Territory Administration, this opinion was expressed by member of the Federation Council Vyacheslav Fetisov, speaking to deputies of the local Legislative Assembly.

“Traveling to competitions in the European part of Russia for a hockey team costs about 600 thousand rubles. The same goes for the football team. It turns out that the organization of several such trips can choose all the funds provided for this in the regional budget. Therefore, our task is to lobby for compensation from the federal budget, ”the Primorsky senator noted.

According to him, this is especially true for children's sports. “Without going to competitions, children do not grow professionally, and the most talented parents are often taken to other regions,” Fetisov said. He also said that this issue had already been discussed at a meeting led by Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Vyacheslav Shtyrov. “The solution to this issue is my direct task,” the senator stressed.
