"There will be girls who meet men, and then they will give birth".
"It's good if it's one race, but if it's another race, then they really did".
Pletnyova who is head of state Duma's Family, Women and Children Committee said it is necessary to avoid a repeat of what happened when country hosted the 1980 Olympics. She added that, even if Russian women get married to their foreign partners after giving birth, they could end up living overseas with their spouses and have no idea how to return home. "We should be birthing our own children".
The term was used during the Soviet era to describe non-white children conceived at worldwide events after relationships between Russian women and men from Africa, Latin America, or Asia. It's lucky if they're the same race (as the mother) but if they're of another race, it's worse, ' the Siberian-born politician said. "I'm not a nationalist, but all the same". They have to stay here with mothers'. "It doesn't matter what nationality they are (as long as) they are Russian citizens", Pletnyova said. "Then they come to me in the committee, girls crying that their baby was taken away, was taken, and so on".
In comments to Govorit Moskva radio station, Alexander Sherin also said Russians should be careful in their interactions with foreigners as they might try to circulate banned substances at the tournament.
"I would like to see people in our country to get married for love". Women are often stranded overseas or in Russian Federation but unable to get their children back, she said.
"I would like to see marriages in our country for love, regardless of the nationality, between those who are citizens of Russian Federation, who will build a good family, live with togetherness, have children and raise them", she said.
Her comments drew criticism and ridicule.
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 previously criticised the #MeToo campaign against sexual harassment, tentatively spreading in Russian Federation. "If a woman doesn't want it, no one is going to harass her", she told Gazeta.ru news site in February.
Pletynova has been an MP since the first post-Soviet parliament in 1993.
