Executive Director of the Finnish Ski Association (FSA) Ismo Hämäläinen spoke about the participation of Russian and Belarusian representatives in the board meeting of the International Ski Federation (FIS). This was reported on the official website of the organization.

“The suspension should be extended not only to athletes, but also to the board of trustees. We will certainly raise this issue in Zurich, ”said the FSA representative.

Hämäläinen added that the Finnish representatives do not plan to miss the FIS meeting, as Norway will. “Absence from the meeting would mean that we would not be able to take a stand on important issues,” he explained.
