“I am not familiar with any facts when Isinbayeva betrayed her Motherland, so I would not comment here. I don’t know about them,” RIA Novosti quotes Peskov as saying.
On July 17, the athlete stated that the awards and military rank she received from the CSKA sports society were of a formal nature. In September, the 41-year-old Russian woman announced that she was returning to work at the International Olympic Committee.
Earlier, Vyalbe said that Isinbayeva betrayed her Motherland.
