Vladimir Putin has dismissed calls for Russian women to refrain from sleeping with World Cup tourists. Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters: 'As for Russian women, they can, perhaps, decide it on their own. They are the best women in whole world.'
He was responding to a sex ban call by Tamara Pletnyova, 70, who said she hoped women would not date visiting fans and get pregnant.
“We must give birth to our children. These (mixed race) kids suffer and have suffered since Soviet times,” Pletnyova told Govorit Moskva radio station.
She warned that Russian women could end up raising mixed-race children on their own, before referring to the 'Children of the Olympics' after the 1980 Moscow games, a time when contraception was not widely available in the country.
“It’s one thing if they’re of the same race but quite another if they’re of a different race. I’m not a nationalist, but nevertheless I know that children suffer. They are abandoned, and that’s it, they stay here with mum,” she said.
The term was used during the Soviet era to describe non-white children conceived at international events after relationships between Russian women and men from Africa, Latin America, or Asia. Many of the children faced discrimination.
