HOCHFILZEN, February 8. /TASS/. The International Biathlon Union (IBU) proposes Russia to voluntarily give up its right for hosting the 2021 IBU World Championship, warning that it will otherwise unilaterally strip the country of the international event, IBU Vice President Viktor Maigurov told TASS on Wednesday.
"Based on the decision of the Executive Committee, the IBU is set to send the Russian Biathlon Union (RBU) an official letter informing it that considering the non-compliance of Russia with the Code of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), it is necessary to refuse the right of holding the world championship," Maigurov said in an interview with TASS.
"The RBU must respond to this letter before February 24," he said. "In case the RBU refuses to give up the championship, the IBU will resort to unilateral actions.".
