MOSCOW, August 27. /TASS/. Russia's Minister of Sports Vitaly Mutko said in an interview with the Match TV channel on Saturday - from the initial report of the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) Independent Commission led by Richard McLaren now are missing a couple pages.

"We wanted to receive that report, and it was not easy to do, but we have received it and translated," the minister said. "But then from the received version two pages got missing. And we studied the updated version of the report."

"I must say, we do not have a list of those involved in falsifying doping tests, mentioned in the report," he continued. "Head of the WADA Independent Commission Richard McLaren also refused to present to the International Olympic Committee any information with detailed evidence of anti-doping legislation’s breaches in the Russian sports."

The Independent Commission of 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.

According to the details, the commission claimed it had found evidence that Russia’s Sports Ministry and the Center for the Training of Russian National Teams and the Federal Security Service had covered up a doping program in Russian sports.

The report from WADA’s Commission stated in particular that the commission’s investigation registered a total of 643 cases of Disappearing Positive Test Results in Russia between 2012 and 2015 involving athletes from 30 sports.

As a result, WADA suggested that the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and all international sports federations ban Russian athletes from all international sports competitions, including Rio 2016.
