Sergey Zheleznyak: “US Senators are trying to once again put the American nation above all international laws and violate the rights of other peoples”

“US Senators are trying to once again put the American nation above all international laws and violate the rights of other peoples. This is the only way to comment on the bill, which creates opportunities for manipulation and provocation against athletes participating in international competitions. Such acts are a clear example of the extraterritorial application of American justice, they are absolutely illegal and cannot be tolerated. ” This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergei Zheleznyak.

The politician called the senators’ initiative politicized and stressed: “It is obvious that the US, under the guise of a new legislative act, will try to continue persecuting Russian athletes, who are very strong competitors in different disciplines. American politicians are demonstrating the methods of unfair competition in sports with which our athletes have repeatedly encountered over the past years. ”

According to the deputy: “To name the new doping bill after the provocateur and liar Rodchenkov, according to the fabricated denunciation of which WADA illegally deprived Russian athletes of the opportunity to compete under the national flag and anthem at international competitions is a specially planned action against Russia. It should also be regarded as an attempt to exert psychological pressure on Russian athletes and create a negative attitude towards our athletes in the minds of the world community. ”

“Everyone knows that Russia is a strong player in the world arena, international cooperation of our country is expanding, Russian athletes demonstrate outstanding achievements in various sports and are competitors for other athletes. This annoys those who do not want to see our country strong, including in sports, ”Zheleznyak stressed.
