MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko told TASS on Wednesday that the recently delivered report by the Independent Commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) would be thoroughly analyzed by the Russian side after the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Brazil.
The Independent Commission with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), chaired by Canadian law professor, Richard McLaren, released the now infamous July 18 report on the results of a probe into the accusations of doping and manipulation of tests by Russian athletes and officials at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
"All [Russian sports] federations currently work in line with the schedule [of 2016 Rio preparations]," Mutko said in an interview with TASS. "We will deal with the report and put forward proposals after the Olympics."
"We need to have a clear-cut system, since the IOC [International Olympic Committee] announced that the current [WADA] system is not ideal," Mutko said.
Mutko said the fight against abuse of performance enhancing drugs in sports has been always in the focus of Russia.
"We have never turned a blind eye on doping issues," Mutko said in an interview with TASS. "We have been always open and followed all regulations."
During the 129th session of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), currently underway in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro, a number of the organization’s executives voiced their concerns in regard to the efficiency of the World Anti-Doping Agency.
"I have repeatedly stated that the agency needed a clear-cut list of regulations, system and standards, which could be understandable for everyone," Mutko said.
Between three and four additional unordinary requirements were set for athletes from the Russian national Olympic team to be eventually allowed to take part in the 2016 Summer Olympics, Mutko said.
"The most important issue at the moment is that our national team is preparing for the Olympics," Mutko said in an interview with TASS. "Additional three or four requirements were put forward for our team to be allowed to take part in the Olympics."
"These requirements are unique and completely different in force to other national teams," Mutko added.
"The problem of doping in sports is not only in Russia, but it is on the global scale," Mutko said. "I hope that everything would be resolved tomorrow, or maybe the day after tomorrow, and the whole Russian team would be granted access [to 2016 Rio Olympics]."
