OTTAWA, July 18. /TASS/. The Executive Committee of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has recommended banning Russian government officials from international competitions, including the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, WADA said in a statement on Monday.

WADA also said the accreditation process of the WADA-accredited anti-doping laboratory in Moscow should be stopped.

Earlier on Monday WADA claimed in its report that the Moscow anti-doping laboratory covered up Russian athletes, who used performance-enhancing drugs. It also accused the Russian Sports Ministry, Federal Security Service and other government agencies of running a state-controlled program to cover up doping abuse among the athletes.
