MOSCOW, February 2. /TASS/. The Russian Swimming Federation has no information on any new cases of positive doping tests of its athletes, its head Vladimir Salnikov said on Tuesday.

Earlier on Tuesday, Swimvortex web portal quoted Cornel Marculescu, director of the International Swimming Federation (FINA), as saying that FINA is placing "special attention" on Russia, which still has "two or three [doping] cases" in the aquatics pipeline.

"As for today, I have no information from anti-doping commissions," Salnikov said. "Doping probes are confidential, so the federation has no right to interfere."

The federation will ask FINA to clarify the procedure of doping control at the Russian swimming championship that will be the qualifying tournament for the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Salnikov said.

"We will ask FINA to guarantee the work of doping experts at the Russian championship in April," he said.

In 2014, Russia’s Olympic bronze medalist in swimming Yulia Yefimova, the four-time world champion and many times winner of European tournaments, was given a 16-month ban after testing positive for doping.
