MOSCOW, February 11. /TASS/. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) will receive an official conclusion from the Russian Prosecutor-General’s office the Russian authorities have absolutely nothing to do with doping rows, Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko has told TASS.
"We will share the report with WADA and brief everybody else who is entitled to having this information," Mutko said.
"The Prosecutor-General’s Office has said that there is not a single piece of evidence that might confirm the authorities were somehow involved in the affair and covered up the abusers. Nobody reads the report with a pen in hand. For the majority it is most important to hear what is said aloud," Mutko said.
The probe followed after the deputy chairman of the Civic Chamber’s public security committee, Dmitry Chugunov, asked prosecutors to look into conclusions contained in a WADA report.
WADA’s report contains the results of its investigation of the All-Russia Athletic Federation (ARAF), the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory, the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) and the Sports Ministry. On its basis the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) suspended the ARAF’s membership, thereby putting a question mark over Russian athletes’ participation in the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
