MOSCOW, November 30. /TASS/. The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), affiliated to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), will not be disbanded, Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said on Monday.
"No doubt, RUSASA will remain as an organization," Mutko said. "We have started working (jointly with WADA)," he added.
The sports minister earlier did not rule that the agency could be dissolved.
The Independent Commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) published on November 9 the results of its probe into the activity of the All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF), the Moscow anti-doping laboratory, the Russian Anti-Doping Agency and the Russian Sports Ministry. The commission brought accusations against some athletics officials and athletes.
The Moscow anti-doping laboratory announced on November 10 it was fully suspending its activity. WADA earlier stated that the activity of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) failed to adhere to WADA’s code. RUSADA received a notification last week on the suspension of its activities.
On November 26, a delegation of Russia’s Sports Ministry led by Mutko held the first meeting with the representatives of WADA on restoring the status of RUSADA.
