GENEVA, May 18. /TASS/. Doping samples, collected last week from all 11 players of Russia’s Rostov football club, tested negative, FIFA said in its statement on Wednesday.

Following Rostov’s match against Dinamo Moscow FC on May 12 (3-1), all 11 players from Russia’s southern football club were summoned for doping tests.

Head of FIFA Medical Department Jiri Dvorak told TASS last week the doping examination followed information that Rostov FC earlier acquired large quantities of banned performance enhancing drug meldonium.

The drug meldonium (mildronate) was included in the list of preparations banned by WADA from January 1, 2016. The presence of the meldonium substance in the athlete’s blood during and between competitions is a violation of anti-doping rules. The substance belongs to S4 class on the WADA blacklist (hormones and metabolic modulators).

Meldronate is a cardiovascular preparation freely available for purchase at pharmacies across Russia without doctor’s prescription.
