MOSCOW, April 08, /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Tennis Federation reported on its official website on Tuesday that it had included Crimea in its 2014-2020 tennis development programme.
All the necessary documents have been sent to the Russian Sport Ministry. After that, they will go to the Russian government for consideration.
“We want to guarantee future to experimental teams which are our immediate reserve,” Russian Tennis Federation Vice-President and Secretary-General Yakov Shatkhin said.
“The Federation has great plans to develop a system of international competitions in Russia. We have described our plans in the programme in every detail. This is going to be decisive for Russian tennis,” Shatkhin said, adding the idea to include Crimea into the project had worked well.
“Russian Tennis Federation Chief Shamil Tarpishchev visited the peninsula last week to meet the local authorities with whom he reached full consensus,” Shatkhin said.
