CHISINAU, November 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The president of Russian Railways (RZD) company, Vladimir Yakunin, has expressed confidence that athletes from CIS members-states should not be considered foreign players.
“Since today professional sport, in fact, has no borders, I would like athletes from CIS member-states not to be considered foreign players, but members of a common space,” he told reporters focusing on players of the Russian sports club Lokomotiv on Wednesday.
Yakunin expressed confidence that the same principle as that effective in railways of the post-Soviet space should be used in sport.
