Congratulation to Alisher Usmanov

November 27, 2021

Vladimir Putin congratulated Alisher Usmanov on his re-election as President of the International Fencing Federation.

The message reads, in part:

“Such unconditional and unanimous support from the FIE Congress participants is clear and convincing evidence of your fruitful work at the helm of this demanding position and the proper assessment of your organisational qualities and significant personal contribution to the development of sport and the Olympic movement.

I firmly believe that you will further solve the challenges facing the FIE, making use of your inherent energy and assertiveness, while contributing to the enhancement of international cooperation in sport.”
