Anton Sikharulidze: We must actively cooperate with the ISU
He stressed that many ISU members want Russian athletes to return.
Acting President of the FFKKR Anton Sikharulidze commented on the return of Russian figure skaters to international competitions.
"The IOC has voiced its position on the participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes. Some international federations already allow Russian athletes. I think we should actively cooperate with the ISU on this issue and insist on the participation of our skaters in international competitions. Fencing, chess, triathlon, wrestling and tennis are precedents," he said.
In addition, Sikharulidze said that many representatives of the ISU said that it's time for Russian athletes to participate - the competition is completely different without them.
