MOSCOW, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered on Monday to define feasibility and set order in recruitment of foreign specialists and athletes for winter and summer sports in Russia.
“I ask you to define feasibility and set order in the process of recruiting foreign specialists for summer and winter sports, while the Sports Ministry will be legally responsible of maintaining this order,” Putin said at a session of the development of physical culture and sports.
The president said that the practice of hiring foreign sports specialists is not convincing and often results in failure.
“We need to raise the professional level of our domestic athletes and coaches, to search for talented and bright athletes and form out of them a real, coordinated and confident team,” Putin said adding that “this is the only way to count on future victories.”
The president said, however, that he was not urging to completely refuse the work of foreign specialists in Russian sports.
“Many of them work productively and bring perfect results, particularly in types of sports, in which the national school is at the developing stage only,” Putin added.
