OREANDA-NEWS. The Russian freestyle wrestling team was not allowed to board a flight to Oslo at Amsterdam airport Schiphol, presumably due to a violation of the mask regime, Mikhail Mamiashvili, president of the Russian Wrestling Federation (FSBR), told RIA Novosti. The team made a transfer in Schiphol on the way to Oslo, where the World Cup will be held from October 2 to 10.

«The most interesting thing is that there are no protocols, no explanations here you are, you and you, removed from the flight. It seems like they violated the mask regime at the airport. Was the mask lowered or something else… But all without dialogue and without explanation. Let this be our biggest problem. The main thing is that the whole team is flying to Oslo», Mamiashvili told.

According to the rules introduced in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, it is necessary to wear a protective mask at Schiphol Airport at all times.
