Roman Teryushkov will appeal to the Prosecutor General’s Office after the words of Elena Isinbayeva about the “nominal” rank of major.
“Nominal major with the most real Spanish revelations.
Olympian Yelena Isinbayeva, elevated to the rank of folk hero in the past couple of decades but missing from the public field since February 2022, recently erupted in a social media post in Spanish. The reason for dotting the i for the athlete was the publication of a Spanish newspaper that the major of the Russian army now lives on the island of Tenerife.
The news flew around the Russian media orbit, causing a patriotic shock in society. In Spanish shame, Isinbayeva reminded everyone that she was a legend with a torn levator thigh muscle, the best athlete on the planet, awarded the prize of some Prince of Asturias.
She also mentioned Russia, but in the aspect of being assigned to the CSKA sports club with a “nominal” assignment of a military rank.
Isinbayeva was elected in 2016 as a member of the IOC according to the quota of athletes, however, in June 2023, the IOC launched a check on her military activities and support for the SVO. Based on the results, the IOC confirmed that it had found no grounds for punishing Isinbayeva, the IOC ethics commission considered that she had no contractual ties with the Russian Armed Forces and did not support the SVO.
In this regard, Isinbayeva expressed her joy at the resumption of her international activities at the IOC as early as September 2023, bothering to translate the Spanish text into Russian specifically for VKontakte readers.
Considering Isinbayeva’s clear intent to discredit the Russian Armed Forces and defile the rank of an officer in order to maintain a profitable position in the IOC, I appeal to the Prosecutor General’s Office to take action. An officer who deliberately discredits the honor of his uniform should be deprived of his military rank.
And it would be right for the VKontakte service to block Isinbayeva’s post as incompatible with the civil position of Russian society regarding national pride in the Russian Army, ”the State Duma deputy wrote.
Isinbayeva really lives in Spain? Her daughter plays tennis in the Canaries, and Elena makes excuses in two languages
