MOSCOW, August 11. /TASS/. The Russian Basketball Federation (RBF) has not yet received a written decision on lifting Russia’s suspension from membership in the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), Deputy Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov said on Tuesday.
Based on this decision, further steps will be taken to settle the situation in the Russian Basketball Federation, the deputy sports minister said.
"We have not yet received the FIBA’s written decision on lifting the sanctions. It is apparently being translated," Kolobkov said.
"Proceeding from this decision, we’ll take further steps. Let me repeat, it is necessary to receive the FIBA’s decision where further measures and time limits are clearly prescribed. We have good, constructive relations with the FIBA," the deputy sports minister said.
The FIBA earlier suspended Russia’s membership over the non-transparent management system at the Russian Basketball Federation.
The situation over the Russian Basketball Federation was in focus of a meeting of the FIBA central board on Sunday. At its Sunday meeting, the FIBA central board lifted the ban to take part in international competitions off all Russian teams. The ban was also lifted off Russian coaches, referees and commissioners. The board, however, kept a ban in respect of other officials of the Russian Basketball Federation.
