MOSCOW, December 10. /TASS/. UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) will be helping the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) to carry out its work, an advisor to the Russian Sports Minister said on Thursday.

"WADA [the World Anti-Doping Agenc - TASS] has recommended UKAD to RUSADA. They are expected to plan tests together attracting international companies which take [doping] tests," Natalia Zheleznova said.

An independent commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) 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.

After that, the RUSADA and the Moscow anti-doping laboratory suspended their work.

On November 13, 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.
