The current president of the Russian Biathlon Union (RBU) Vladimir Drachev is officially registered to participate in the election of the head of the organization. It is reported by TASS.
The term of office of Drachev as head of the RRF expires in May 2022. Elections may not be held if a third of the representatives vote against the early termination of the presidency.
The reason for the extraordinary elections was the disagreement that arose between the delegates and Drachev on the formation of the coaching staff of the Russian national team for next season.
