Sands: the Kremlin have nothing to add to the denials of the Ministry of sport of the Russian Federation in response to the allegations WADA

SOCHI, November 9. Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov has nothing to add to the denials of the Ministry of sport in response to the accusations of the world anti-doping Agency (WADA). “We know about it from the media first and foremost proceed from the refutations that have been made by our Ministry of sport”, – told reporters the President’s press Secretary Dmitry Peskov.

He also did not answer the question of whether or not the charges are politically motivated, re-pointing journalists to the comment of the MST.

Commenting on the claims of anti-doping Agency to the FSB, which allegedly interfered in the activities of the Russian anti-doping Agency, Peskov stressed that “this is not an issue on the agenda of the Kremlin.”

As stated by Executive Director of the Russian anti-doping Agency (RUSADA) Nikita Kamayev, the report of the independent Commission of the world anti-doping Agency (WADA) is “raw”, the accusations against Russia are unfounded. “Speaking of destroyed doping samples, until I see a “raw” report and declarative statements without evidence, said Kamaev. – This also applies to the charges in bribes from the athletes. I don’t see this logic. At the moment, all allegations are unfounded”.
