Russian politicians now torn on World Cup sex

Russian women and visiting World Cup fans: Be fruitful and multiply.

After a Russian lawmaker caused a backlash on social media by advising Russian women against getting involved with foreign soccer fans, her colleague is urging love and procreation during the championship.

The state news agency Tass is quoting parliament member Mikhail Degtyaryov as saying on Thursday that, “The more love stories we have connected to the world championship, the more people from different countries fall in love, the more children are born, the better.”

Degtyaryov is the head of a parliamentary committee overseeing sports. He said Russia is welcoming “fans from all countries, skin colors, all religions, all genders and all [sexual] orientations.”

Degtyaryov spoke after his colleague Tamara Pletnyova suggested that Russian women may end up rearing the fans’ children alone.

Pletnyova, who is the head of Russia’s parliamentary committee for families, women and children, was speaking about the “Children of the Olympics” born in the aftermath of the 1980 Moscow Summer Games. Many of the non-white children faced racism, Reuters reported.

“It is one thing if the parents are of the same race; quite another if they are of different races,” she said in Russian to the Moscow Times.

Pletnyova claimed that Russian relationships with foreigners end badly but that she wasn’t motivated by nationalism.

“We should be giving birth to our own children. I’m not a nationalist, but still,” she added.
