The Kremlin has ruled out the involvement of Russia to cracking WADA anti-doping database


Press Secretary of Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the Russian involvement in the hacker attack on WADA anti-doping system “cannot be and speeches” (quoted by TASS).

Earlier Tuesday, a group of Fancy Bear published data obtained as a result of hacking the ADAMS system, which records all the results of doping tests. According to these data, well-known U.S. athletes, including tennis players Serena and Venus Williams and gymnast Simone Bilz, for a long time used illegal drugs. Hackers, in particular, published a resolution on the use of such substances for therapeutic purposes.

After that, the Director General of WADA Oliver Niggli condemned the cyberattacks. The world anti-doping Agency has informed the law enforcement authorities that these attacks are organized from Russia,” he said. “We want to say that these attacks undermine the attempts of the global anti-doping system to restore confidence in Russia”, — said the head of WADA.
