ST. PETERSBURG, June 17. /TASS/. Russia will take all possible steps to protect the legal interests of its Olympic athletes, while continuing to cooperate with all international organizations, including on doping issues, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday, commenting on the forthcoming meeting of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) that is to decide on whether Russian athletes will compete at the 2016 Olympic Games.
"Of course, in legal terms everything possible is done and will be done to protect the interests of our athletes and Russia’s Olympic team, this is very important," he said when asked whether any steps are considered in the event of Russia’s suspension from the Rio Olympics.
"Full-fledged cooperation with all international sports organizations and departments continues. This is a purposeful policy set by the Russian president, both in terms of cooperation in the fight against doping and in investigating the suspected doping abuse cases," the Kremlin spokesman added.
Peskov declined to comment on IAAF’s possible decisions before they are announced.
