MOSCOW, September 16. /TASS/. Andrey Kirilenko, elected last month the president of the Russian Basketball Federation (RBF), will head for France later this week to discuss with FIBA top managers the final lifting of sanctions imposed on the RBF, he told TASS on Wednesday.
"I am going to the European championships in France in three days and will hold talks with FIBA on the lifting of sanctions," Kirilenko said.
The RBF was suspended in late July by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), which cited the lack of transparency in the Russian federation’s management as the reason for its decision. All Russian national basketball teams were suspended from international competitions as a result of the suspension.
However, at a session of the FIBA’s Central Board, which convened on August 8-9 in Tokyo, Japan, it was decided to all the Russian national teams were to play at the international level championships, but the suspension of the RBF remained in force.
