“First of all, I wish him success, strength and patience in his new position. Of course, I have high expectations. I really want his work to be as productive as possible during his term of office and for sports in our country to grow exponentially.

I think that now is the time to develop domestic Russian sports – first of all, children’s and youth sports and mass sports. The construction and modernization of existing infrastructure facilities is mandatory. Again, accessibility is of great importance: that all citizens, regardless of age and gender, have equal opportunities to visit sports facilities. And of course, in any case, it is necessary to work to return our sport and our athletes to the international arena,” Nikonorov said.
