The President of the Russian DanceSport Union (RDSU), Mrs Irina Petrova, the members of her Presidium, the Russian Ministry of Sport and the Russian National Committee were all given notice today of the expulsion of RDSU from membership in the World DanceSport Federation (WDSF). The WDSF General Meeting held on 12 June 2016 had resolved by a majority of two thirds to expel the National Member Body for Russia and to suspend the expulsion until 31 October 2016, giving RDSU more than four months time to meet a set of clearly defined conditions and provisions. The suspension came into full force and effect on 1 November 2016, after RDSU had failed to meet these condidtions and provisions, and after an unanimous vote was taken by the members of the WDSF Presidium.

WDSF will administer DanceSport in Russia directly from its Lausanne, Switzerland, Headquarters. More information in this matter will be published shortly.
