A senior Russian lawmaker advised Russian women Wednesday to be vigilant during any romantic encounters with foreign fans flocking to Russia for the World Cup so as not to end up raising their children alone.

Tamara Pletnyova, head of the family, women and children's affairs committee, argued that even if these relationships led to marriage, women or their children would inevitably be taken overseas by the man.

Pletnyova was referencing the Moscow Olympics of 1980 when she said, "Their children will suffer for it".

'Will there still be girls who will date foreigners and then have children from them Perhaps there will be some, but I am hoping not'.

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.

The Family, Women and Children Affairs Committee chairwoman warned that "nothing good will come out of. the inappropriate behavior of Russian women".

Asked if the World Cup could boost Russia's birth rate - a key goal for President Vladimir Putin - Pletneva replied: "We should be giving birth to our own children". "They've suffered in the past, since the Soviet period".

She also suggested that should a Russian woman get pregnant, it would be better if the father of the child was "of the same race".

Pletnyova said, "I know that children suffer if they are abandoned and left here with the mother".

"Then they come to me at the committee and cry that the child was taken away, removed, and so forth. It's lucky if they're the same race (as the mother) but if they're of another race, it's worse", she said, adding "I'm not a nationalist".

Pletnyova said she that she would like Russian citizens to get married "out of love regardless of their ethnicity".

"We're not in America or Europe".

Russian women have been told to resist the temptation to enter intimate relationship with foreign players and fans alike during the month long display of soccer artistry. "If a woman doesn't want it, no one is going to harass her", she told Gazeta.ru news site in February.
