Dmitry Guberniev reacted to the publication of Elena Isinbayeva about the “nominal rank of major.”
“Yelena Isinbayeva said that she was nominally an officer in the Russian army. I would like her to clarify what “nominally” means.
She, it turns out, was a nominal officer, received a nominal salary, nominal benefits? Or is it still not true?
It would also be interesting to hear the comments of the military unit she represented. Was Isinbayeva a nominal officer?
If Elena Isinbayeva defends the interests of the Russian Federation in the IOC not nominally, then her return to work will be useful. And if it is nominal, then it will raise even bigger questions,” Guberniev said.
Yelena Isinbayeva: “In September, I will resume my activities at the IOC, as the committee has no doubts about me. The rank of Major is purely nominal.”
