Bearing the children of non-Russians could lead to broken families, Tamara Pletnyova, the head of the State Duma's Family, Women and Children Committee, warned in an interview Wednesday.
She said that children risked being "abandoned and just left with their mother" or alternatively being taken overseas by their fathers, urging women to marry "Russian citizens".
"It's the children who suffer. and have suffered since the Soviet era". Numerous children faced discrimination. "We should be birthing our own children. These (mixed race) kids suffer and have suffered since Soviet times", Pletnyova told Govorit Moskva radio station.
Pletnyova concedes that if Russian women simply can't control themselves, they should at least have sex with visitors of the same race. I'm not a nationalist, but nonetheless.
"I know that children suffer if they are abandoned and they are left here with the mother", Pletnyova.

Russian women have been told to resist the temptation to enter intimate relationship with foreign players and fans alike during the month long display of soccer artistry.

The much awaited World cup will kick off Thursday with host country Russian Federation taking on Saudi Arabia at the 81 thousand capacities Luzhniki Stadium.

Pletnyova is a lawmaker for the KPRF Communist Party, a nominally opposition party that backs President Vladimir Putin's Kremlin on most key issues.
