Russian Women Should Avoid Sex With Foreign World Cup Fans, Lawmaker Says

A senior lawmaker has implored Russian women to avoid entering into intimate relationships with foreign World Cup fans at the risk of raising children as single mothers. Most recently she responded to allegations from multiple female journalists who accused one of Pletnyova's male colleagues of sexually assaulting them by saying they should dress more conservatively, or quit their jobs if they feel unsafe.

She warns that even if these women plan on marrying their foreign baby daddy, their child could end up stuck in another country with no means of getting back to Russian Federation. "These children will later suffer and have suffered in the Soviet era", Pletnyova said in a quote translated by The Independent. She said that she has received complaints from some Russian women who moved overseas after marrying foreigners and eventually lost custody of their children.

"We must give birth to our children".

Pletnyova concedes that if Russian women simply can't control themselves, they should at least have sex with visitors of the same race.

The term was used during the Soviet era to describe non-white children conceived at global events after relationships between Russian women and men from Africa, Latin America, or Asia. I'm not a nationalist, but nonetheless. "It doesn't matter what nationality they are (as long as) they are Russian citizens", Pletnyova said.

"Then they come to me at the committee and cry that the child was taken away, removed, and so forth".

She said: 'Even if [the men] marry [the mother], they take her away (from Russia) and she doesn't know how to get back.

"I would like to see people in our country to get married for love".

"I would like to see marriages in our country for love, regardless of the nationality, between those who are citizens of Russian Federation, who will build a good family, live with togetherness, have children and raise them", she said.

However, her comments drew both criticism and ridicule. Why should we copy everything?

Thousands of soccer fans from 31 countries are travelling to the World Cup in Russian Federation that kicks off on Thursday with an opening ceremony in the capital followed by a match between the host team and Saudi Arabia. "If a woman doesn't want it, no one is going to harass her", she told Gazeta.ru news site in February.
