Report doping in Russian sport recognized as “unauthoritative”

World anti-doping Agency (WADA) recognized the untenable conclusions about the “total doping” in Russian sports, which, we recall, led to the mass suspension of Russian athletes at the national or Olympic teams, participation in competitions. The IRNA news Agency with reference to the Sputnik gave the WADA statement, which stated the following: in the report “independent Commission”, working under the auspices of the Agency under the leadership of Richard McLaren, not given enough arguments and grounds to confirm the findings of numerous violations of doping rules by Russian athletes.

In a letter published on the official website of WADA, IOC Director General Christophe de Kepper directly confirmed the fact of the insolvency of the charges. The text also indicates that the World doping Agency described the translation used in the investigation documents as “unsatisfactory” and that these documents require further explanation.

Recall that Richard McLaren unveiled the second part of its report in December last year. It States that in samples of doping tests Russian athletes participating in the Winter Olympic games in Sochi in 2014, revealed numerous facts of falsifications and violations.

Created by independent Agency, the Commission already stated that in the case of substitution of doping tests presented in the anti-Doping laboratory, were involved over a thousand Russian athletes involved in approximately 30 sports.

Deputy Prime Minister of Russia and former Minister of sport Vitaly Mutko, immediately calling the allegations groundless, also explained that was absolutely obvious and clear them “politically motivated nature”. According to officials, they aim to eventually be accused of doping and moral impurity “the Russian sports”.

Vitaly Mutko, commenting leveled against the Russian accusations, added: “the IOC is also a subject-the Olympic games in Sochi. It is exactly the same as WADA, oversaw all procedures related to doping tests. Accordingly, we do not know in what sports at the Olympics, Russian athletes used doping”.

“Russia has never been involved in tampering with doping and not doing it now,” — said Mutko.

Recall that WADA formed an independent Commission to investigate doping in Russian sport, working under the direction of McLaren, claimed the following: opened envelopes and containers laboratory samples of doping tests, the scratches on the packages and containers with stains on them of unknown origin, as well as the uncertainty surrounding the DNA, can among other things be considered a clear evidence and proof substitution and manipulation of the doping tests Russian biathletes.

As a result, Russia, which has always been one of the main contenders for the medals in various sports, have been unable to send to the summer Olympics 2016 in Rio de Janeiro as their men’s and women’s teams of athletes, as well as honorary athletes in weightlifting. In addition, as a result of allegations of use of illegal drugs is completely removed from the summer Olympics in Brazil, was the Russian Paralympic athletes.

Russia earlier claimed that the accusations of doping made against its athletes, and their subsequent suspension from competition, is the result of political pressure. And now Russian officials say that the problem of the use of doping drugs for many other countries, however, against any such measures and steps are taken.
