MOSCOW, November 19. /TASS/. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) will form an expert group for cooperation with the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), the RUSADA press service said on Thursday.

"RUSADA will continue its work in Russia in the format coordinated with WADA," the press service said.

An independent WADA commission delivered on November 9 a report on its investigation into doping abuse allegations involving Russian athletes. This recommended that the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) suspends all athletes of the All-Russia Athletics Federation from international competitions.

Last Friday, the IAAF council voted 22-1 to suspend the Russian federation, which could prevent Russian track and field athletes taking part in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics next year.

A WADA committee also found the Russian Anti-Doping agency (RUSADA) infringed the sport's anti-doping code. RUSADA said it was ready to meet all WADA requirements and work to resolve current problems.
