On the eve of the Rugby-7 tournament for the Cup of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, which will be held from September 3 to 4 in St. Petersburg, at the Petrovsky stadium, the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, held a working meeting on its preparation and holding.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the Main Command of the Navy, units and organizations directly subordinate to the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, as well as the head of the Russian Rugby Federation Committee for the Development of Rugby in the Armed Forces and Security Structures of the Russian Federation, member of the Supreme Council of the Russian Rugby Federation, President of the CSKA Rugby Club Alexey Mitryushin, Director of the European Rugby-7 Cup Directorate Philip Khanin and President of the St. Petersburg Rugby Federation Mikhail Zaritsky-Muzykus.

Within the framework of the meeting, the organizational issues of the tournament were considered. The Cup will be held for the second time, but for the first time it will be held in the city where the main command of the Russian Navy is based. The winner of the first drawing was the combined team of the Baltic Higher Naval School of the VUNC of the Navy “Naval Academy” from Kaliningrad.

“Currently, the Navy is the leader in terms of the number of formed national teams. In all fleets, in each higher naval educational institution, as well as in the Nakhimov Naval School and the Kronstadt Naval Cadet Military Corps, national rugby-7 teams have been formed, and their training is organized. Separately, I note that in the final stage of the Cup of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in 2021, of the participating 14 teams, 4 teams represent the Navy, this is the largest representation among the branches and arms of the Armed Forces, “the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy noted at the meeting.
