Acting President of the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) Pavel Rozhkov said that at a meeting of the executive committee of the organization, a fragment from the First Concerto of Pyotr Tchaikovsky for piano and orchestra was approved as a replacement for the Russian anthem at the Paralympic Games.
Due to the sanctions of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), Russian athletes cannot fly their national flag at the World Championships, Olympics and Paralympics. Also, the national anthem cannot be played in their honor.
Earlier, Moskvina shared her emotions from awarding Mishina and Gallyamov to the music of Tchaikovsky.
