World Championship2018

In the Kremlin and the State Duma called on not to decide for the Russians, whether they should start romances with foreigners at the 2018 World Cup

This is the answer to the head of the family committee, which called on women to “give birth to their children.”

On June 13, the head of the State Duma committee on family issues, Tamara Pletnyova, in an interview with “Says Moscow” urged Russians not to have sex with foreigners at the World Cup. According to her, women will be unhappy due to the fact that “the child was taken away,” and referred to similar cases after the 1980 Olympic Games.

Then they come to my committee like this, girls cry, that the child was taken away, taken away, and so on. These children later suffered and suffered, even from the time of Soviet power. Well, if one more race, and if another race, then at all. We should give birth to our children. I’m not a nationalist, but nevertheless.

The statement by Pletnyova became one of the main news of the day, about which almost all federal and major mass media wrote .

On June 14, the head of the State Duma Committee on Physical Culture responded to Pletnyova’s statement and did not agree with her. He called on the fans and football players to take the World Cup “with love” and expressed the hope that many will meet their second half.

The more we have the love stories connected with the World Cup, the more people fall in love from different countries, the more children are born, the better. Because these children later many years will remember that the love story of their parents began in Russia in 2018.

Also the words of the head of the committee on family issues were commented in the Kremlin. The press secretary of the president Dmitry Peskov told the radio station “Says Moscow” that Russians can solve their own personal issues independently.

Well and as to our Russian women – probably, they will understand all with the questions. They are the best women in the world.

At the same time, Peskov recalled that one of the rules of the FIFA World Cup is “Say no to racism”.

I urge you to look at the fan’s passport and read what’s written down there. This is the best way to characterize the atmosphere of this holiday and the way in which it approaches the holiday atmosphere in Russia
