MOSCOW, November 16, (ITAR-TASS) - The House of the Russian national Olympic team was opened on Saturday in Manezhnaya Square in the heart of Moscow.
“We would like as many as possible people throughout the country learn about the national team,” head of the Russian Olympic Committee Aleksandr Zhukov said. “This was the reason to organise the House.”
