Key Words: Vladimir Putin rejects lawmaker’s plea for Russian women to avoid having sex with World Cup tourists

If one senior Russian lawmaker has her way, debauchery will be kept to a minimum this World Cup.

Tamara Pletnyova, in a radio interview leading up to kickoff, called on the women of her country to resist having sex with randy foreign tourists this summer and that they should, instead, “give birth to our own.”

Pletnyova said she believes Russian citizens should marry each other and “build a good family, live together, give birth to children and educate them.” She referenced the spike in births from foreign fathers following the 1980 Moscow Olympics as evidence that “these children then suffer.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin disagrees, judging from this response from his spokesman Dmitry Peskov:

‘Russian women can probably manage their own affairs. They are the best women in the world.’

Mikhail Degtyaryov, who heads up the Russian parliamentary committee that oversees sports, also took issue with Pletnyova’s comments, according to Russian state news agency Tass.

“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,” he told reporters.

As for the action on the field, Russia started the World Cup by coasting to a victory, defeating Saudi Arabia 5-0 in the first game of the tournament.
