SOCHI, November 9. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday he has nothing to add to the Russian sports ministry’s disproof of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) accusations.
"We know about it from the mass media and rely on the disproof voiced by our sports ministry," Peskov told journalists.
He did not say whether the Kremlin considered these accusation as politicialy motivated having referred this question to the sports ministry instead.
Commenting on the WADA claims to Russia’s Federal Security Service that allegedly meddled into the activities of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency, Peskov said the issue was "beyond the Kremlin agenda."
Meanwhile, Nikita Kamayev, the president of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) told TASS the report delivered earlier on Monday by the Independent Commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was ‘raw’ and its accusations against Russia were ungrounded.
"If we speak about the allegedly destroyed doping samples, I see only a raw report and declarative statements without any proof," Kamayev said. "This also goes in regard to accusations of bribes offered by athletes. I see no logic here. All accusations are ungrounded at the moment."
