VIENNA, April 26 (Itar-Tass) - Athletes and official delegations of the European Union countries coming to the World University Games in Kazan in July 2013 and the Olympic Games in Sochi in 2014 may be relieved of the necessity to obtain Russian visas in spite of slow progress at the talks with the European Union on visa-free travel, Ambassador at Large of the Russian Foreign Ministry Anvar Azimov told reporters on the sidelines of the OSCE session focused on the freedom of traveling.

“Russia is looking into a possibility to permit visa-free entry for athletes and members of delegations during the Universiade in Kazan and the Olympic Games in Sochi as well,” he said.

“Certainly, we would like to time the decision on visa-free travel to coincide with the Olympic Games in Sochi,” Azimov said. “Unfortunately, the European Union has declared the prematurity of this issue and the necessity to more thoroughly implement a list of joint steps thus rejecting our proposal to introduce visa-free travel before the Sochi Olympics,” the diplomat said.
