The Russian Ministry of justice will not explain the Kontinental hockey League (KHL) and the Ministry of sport, the rules of application of international treaties in terms of attracting foreign athletes. Controversial provision of Legionnaires can help to alleviate the court of the Eurasian economic Union (EEU), has informed RIA “news” in a press-Department service.
The sports Ministry earlier in the week issued a decree on limiting the number of foreign players in hockey competitions in the 2015/16 five foreign nationals, including one goalkeeper. KHL August 15 announced the approval of the order with the condition that the limits will not apply to citizens of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, in accordance with the Treaty on the Eurasian economic Union, which took precedence over the laws of the Russian Federation. The sports Ministry took the opposite approach.
Its position KHL has notified the justice Ministry, where he passed the examination and registration of the order of the Ministry of sports.
“Clarification of application of international treaties of the Russian Federation, in particular the Treaty on the Eurasian economic Union, is not within the competence of the Ministry of justice. Explanation of the provisions of the Treaty provides the court of the Eurasian economic Union”, – stated in the reply of the Ministry of justice.
The Ministry said that the orders “On approval of restrictions on the participation of athletes” and “On approval of the list of the all-Russian sports competitions that are subject to restrictions on the participation of athletes” in the prescribed manner were legal and anti-corruption expertise, and then on August 17 were registered by Ministry of justice.
A letter from the KHL, the Ministry has also received and is currently under consideration, reported in a press-service.
