  • Russian politician warns women against sex with foreigners during World Cup

Tamara Pletnyova, a 70-year-old Communist who leads the lower house's family, women and children body, told Govorit Moskva radio she hoped women would not date visiting fans and get pregnant. Pletnyova's fear stems from a group of single mothers raising children conceived during the 1980 Olympic Games held in Moscow during the era of the Soviet Union. She added that, even if Russian women get married to their foreign partners after giving birth, they could end up living overseas with their spouses and have no idea how to return home.

Asked if the World Cup could cause a spike in Russia's birth rate - a key goal for President Vladimir Putin - Pletnyova replied: 'We should be giving birth to our own children'.

The term was used during the Soviet era to describe non-white children conceived at worldwide events after relationships between Russian women and men from Africa, Latin America, or Asia. 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. "It's good if they're one race, but if they're of a different race, then it's worse. I'm not a nationalist, but all the same". They are being dumped and this is it. "I know that the children suffer as well, and then they are abandoned and stay here with the mother".

Pletnyova did add that she supports Russian citizens marrying "out of love, regardless of their ethnicity", in a quote translated by Reuters. "I want to see them build good families, live in harmony, have children and raise them, this is what I would like to see".

Pletneva previously criticised the #MeToo campaign against sexual harassment, tentatively spreading in Russian Federation.

Pletynova has been an MP since the first post-Soviet parliament in 1993.
