More protection from penalties

Russian State Duma She plans to change the law in order to “better protection” of the national sport in the future. This was reported by the Russian news agency TASS. The background is the sanctions imposed on Russian federations and athletes in response to the war of aggression in Ukraine. Several sports federations in the country have tried unsuccessfully to challenge the proceedings before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Roman Triushkov, a member of the State Duma Committee on Physical Culture and Sports, considers the decisions of the Court of Arbitration for Sport to be “wrong” and therefore wants to give Russian athletes more protection. According to media reports, the bill now being prepared by the Russian Parliament aims to eliminate “the dominance of international sports arbitration over the laws of the Russian Federation.” Triushkov criticized that the Russian federations are under political pressure from international sports organizations. “What did the IOC do? We were stripped of the flag, the national anthem and the coat of arms. The athletes did not come from Russia, that is, they are not citizens of any country.” “The actions of these supposed independent organizations are already beyond sports law and have become criminal.” Therefore, Triushkov called for Russia to be exempted from the effects of the decisions of the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
