MOSCOW, February 2. /TASS/. A special home-grown competitions schedule has been tailored to help Russian athletes - banned from international events after drugs allegations - keep their sporting spirit alive, says Russian Olympic Committee head Alexander Zhukov.

"It is a difficult time for our athletes, having no opportunity to participate in international contests," Zhukov said. "But a special Russian competitions schedule exists for them to maintain a competitive mood."

"I hope sanctions will be lifted soon and for their return to international events," he added.
