A member of parliament has said Russian women should not have “intimate relations” with foreigners during the World Cup and warned against biracial babies.
Tamara Pletnyova, head of the family, women and children's affairs committee, argued that even if these relationships led to marriage, women or their children would inevitably be taken abroad by the man.
"I'd like people in our country to marry for love, no matter what nationality as long as they are Russian citizens who will build a family, live peacefully, have children and raise them.”
She said women who had babies with foreigners around the time of the 1980 Olympics in Moscow often “suffered” as single mothers.
“It's good if it's one race, but if it's another race, then they really did. We should have our own babies,” Ms Pletnyova said.
