State Duma deputy Svetlana Zhurova spoke about the armor for the players of the Russian national team. Her words are quoted by the Bookmakers Rating.
The deputy considered that this category of athletes could receive a deferment from partial mobilization. “For international competitions, it is necessary to preserve the composition of athletes who will represent the country when all this is over,” she said. At the same time, Zhurova stressed that volunteers should not be stopped.
Earlier, on September 28, it became known that the former player of the Russian national football team Diniyar Bilyaletdinov received a summons to the draft board. It was noted that the athlete will find out whether the agenda is correct or it was sent by mistake.
On September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of partial mobilization in the country. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu specified that a total of 300,000 reservists are planned to be called up.
