“Every athlete these overalls from three to five pieces for different weather,” he added.

The form of the Russian sportsmen can contain only the following inscriptions: Olympic Athlete from Russia (“Olympic athlete from Russia”) or the corresponding abbreviation (OAR). Form the other members of the Russian delegation can only contain the inscription OAR. Emblems of the Russian national team, OCD and emblem will be replaced with two-tone logo OAR that contains white and red colors. The equipment that will be developed for the Russians at the Olympics in 2018, should undergo the procedure of approval of the IOC.
