Head of the RFU Alexander Dyukov said that the issue of the return of legionnaires to the Russian Federation has been resolved, Interfax notes.
According to him, the union is awaiting a corresponding order from the country's authorities. The issue has already been agreed with the government. “If not today, then in the coming days it will be signed, which will enable legionnaires to return to their clubs,” said Dyukov.
The RFU also needs to agree on the rules for holding games with the authorities. The document was submitted to the Ministry of Sports, which redirected it to Rospotrebnadzor. Moreover, restrictions introduced in the Russian Federation may extend. “But the government and we will work to remove restrictions on training,” added the head of the RFU.
