    Default Finland denies Rasul Djukaev a visa for European championships

    Russians are furious and they are appealing the decision. Finland did not state why but I guess its because he is from Chechneya.

    I`m live in Finland and i`m finnish but i can`t understand finish visa law! Finnish law is so ridiculous because they don`t understand, that this russian wrestler is not any refugee who want to stay in Finland he only want to wrestle in European Championship and represent RUSSIA and Chechnya provindence!

    Otarsultanov is Chechen and so are the Saitievs and coach Varaev. That is ridiculous.

    I bet Finland has issues with the fact that Djukaev lives in Chechneya now. They would not understand why he did not move out of there to live and train elsewhere in Russia. They probably have a strict policy against letting Chechen residents in Finland. Bureacracy at its worst.

    So does that mean Russia will not have an entry at 66?

    All out war is OK, but riots over a wrestling team selection needs to be avoided?
