MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. President of the Russian Federation of Bobsleigh (RFB) Georgy Bedzhamov, who is reported to be currently residing outside Russia, must voluntarily resign from his post, Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko told TASS on Thursday.
"The Russian Federation of Bobsleigh is a public organization and the government has no right of interfering in its activities," Mutko said in an interview with TASS. "However, we see that the federation is regulated improperly, its president is on the wanted list and is facing criminal proceedings."
"All of these developments have a deep psychological impact on bobsledders," the minister said. "I believe that the federation must have a new president. It would be acceptable in this situation for the current [RFB] president to resign voluntarily."
