First European Games hosted by Baku presented in Moscow

Alexander Zhukov, the first deputy speaker of the State Duma, the president of the Olympic Committee, said at the Moscow presentation of the first European Games hosted by Baku that Russia will be represented by the best athletes. He said that America and Asia had created their own Olympic Games long ago, and the Games in Baku are a positive development.

Concerning non-Olympic sports, Alexander Zhukov emphasized that they had a colossal chance to promote themselves for the Olympic program. Swimming and track and field competitions will be the only sports where Russia will not be represented by the best athletes.

The presentation of the Baku European Games in Moscow was organized by the Heydar Aliyev Fund and the Azerbaijani embassy in Russia. Mehriban Aliyeva, the First Lady of Azerbaijan, the head of the Heydar Aliyev Fund, a goodwill ambassador of UNESCO and ISESCO, the head of the Organizing Committee of the European Games, made an opening speech. It was followed by two documentaries about the preparations for the Games, after which the floor was taken by Zhukov.

Alexander Zhukov clarified that gymnast Mustafin and judo wrestler Mansour Isayev would partake in the Russian team at the Games. The Russian team will consist of 360 athletes. The official emphasized that Russia had a tradition of sending Olympic veterans and creating the House of the Russian Team. One such House will be opened in Baku to present the joint history of sports. In conclusion, Zhukov wished all the European athletes involved luck and great achievements.
