Former Russian biathlete and now a state Duma Deputy Anton Shipulin has responded to criticism of the Olympic champion Anfisa Tool in his address. We will remind, tool said that former athletes are striving to build a political career solely to earn money, not for the sake of his work to help the country. She said, “They go to the state Duma, just to fill their pockets”.
“I’m sorry that great for our country, the athlete once again trying to remind myself is not real Affairs, and public provocations. This situation occurs not for the first time. I see no reason to evaluate her statements and join the debate through the media. No conflict we never had any.
If Anfisa Anatolyevna understand the specifics of work of deputies and law, it is unlikely to be so expressed. Repeatedly stressed that he was elected to the state Duma in order to earn or to use the resource for personal purposes. I have not had such a purpose. Half of my salary I give to the Council of veterans of his district, another part spend on charity” — quoted Shipulin “RBC-Sport”.
