Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko is in favor of removing a cap on Belarusian players in team sports in Russia. This topic was discussed at the meeting of the head of state with Russia’s Sport Minister Pavel Kolobkov. The meeting also focused on the joint use of sports facilities for the training of Belarusian and Russian athletes, including during the preparations for the Olympic Games in Japan. Alexander Lukashenko emphasized that Russian athletes can train in Belarus at any time if necessary. In turn, Belarusian athletes could use Russian sports facilities in the Far East to adjust to a new time zone.
