MOSCOW, July 28. /TASS/. Staff reshuffles are possible in Russian sport after the 2016 Olympics Games in Rio scheduled for August 5-21, Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko told reporters on Thursday.
"After the Olympics, staff reorganization is possible in Russian sport, if needed," Mutko said.
According to Mutko, the Sports Ministry will closely cooperate with ROC anti-doping commission.
He added that Russian pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva's ban from 2016 Olympics is inhuman.
"I feel pity for Isinbayeva as she is a world symbol," Mutko said. "She has quickly returned (to sport) after a maternity leave. There is not a trace of humanity in relation to her. It distorts the spirit of sport."
