MOSCOW, November 19. /TASS/. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) will make a list of measures with the aim to eradicate violations at the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), the Russian sports minister’s aide for anti-doping issues has told TASS.
Earlier, WADA ruled that RUSADA was not compliant with the organisation’s code and also said a special discipline commission would be established to consider the issue of the anti-doping laboratory in Moscow.
"WADA will enlist the measures needed to eradicate violations in the RUSADA work and will set deadlines as well," said Natalya Zhelanova, who attended the WADA Foundation Board Meeting on Wednesday. "Perhaps, WADA will set up a working group to take under control the process correcting the violations exposed by the independent commission."
Last Monday, an Independent Commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) published results of its probe into activities of the All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF), the Moscow anti-doping laboratory, the Russian Anti-Doping Agency and the Russian Sports Ministry.
The commission made accusations against some athletics officials and athletes, urging the IAAF to suspend the ARAF.
On Friday, the IAAF council voted 22-1 to suspend the Russian federation. At the same time, the anti-doping laboratory in Moscow was ruled not be compliant with the WADA code. The step could prevent Russian track and field athletes from taking part in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
