Russian women told to avoid sex with foreigners during World Cup

Cassandra Castillo | 14 June, 2018, 19:54

"You are lucky if they are from the same race, but if they are from a difference race, then it's even more", she said, cutting herself short in the end.

Another lawmaker, Alexander Sherin, said foreign fans could bring viruses to the World Cup and infect Russians, Reuters reported.

'Perhaps there will be some, but I am hoping not'.

A senior law maker in Russia Tamara Pletnyova who gave the charge on Wednesday said sex with foreigners while the competition lasted could result into pregnancy later leading to single motherhood.

She was responding to a question about the "kids of the Olympics" - referencing the claim that there was a spike in births of mixed-race children in Russian Federation after the 1980 Summer Olympics.

Urging women to marry "Russian citizens" instead, she said that children risked being "abandoned and just left with their mother" or being taken overseas by their fathers.

'Then they come to see me at parliament and cry that their children were taken away, snatched from them.

She added that, even if Russian women get married to their foreign partners, they could end up living overseas with their spouses and have no idea how to return home. Pletnyova claims she's in favor of Russian women marrying "out of love regardless of their ethnicity", and insists that she is concerned about the well-being of mix-raced children who could face discrimination.

She added: 'I am not a nationalist, but nonetheless, I know how children suffer later on.

Her comments drew criticism and ridicule.

'I would like to say that these girl journalists should look more decent, put clothes on themselves when entering a state building, instead of having their belly buttons naked, ' Pletnyova said in an interview with Ekho Moskvy radio.

"We're not in America or Europe". If a woman doesn't want it, no one is going to harass her, ' she told Gazeta.ru news site in February.

More than half a million fans from across the world are expected in 11 Russian cities that will host the football championship between June 14 and July 15.

Pletynova has been an MP since the first post-Soviet parliament in 1993.
