MOSCOW, August 27. /TASS/. Russia's Ministry of Sports will file lawsuits to civil courts against authors, who claimed Russia has state support for doping, Minister Vitaly Mutko said in an interview with the Match TV channel on Saturday.
"We have made legal estimation," the minister said. "We shall present it to international organizations and will selectively file lawsuits to civil courts against the authors, who have accused us of supporting doping."
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.
