Directive No2878-r of 6 November 2020
Russian athletes, coaches, referees and physical training experts can now go abroad much easier than before. The relevant directive was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
Now, the Ministry of Sport will make lists of those who are going to take part in sports events outside Russia and forward the names to the Federal Security Service and the Federal Agency for Air Transport.
This decision will make it much easier for athletes and PT specialists to go abroad to participate in international competitions.
The directive signed by Mikhail Mishustin will also lift any restrictions for this category of citizens going through Russian road, rail or any other kind of border-crossing points.
