MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. Russia’s Sports Ministry said on Friday it withdraws from the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) from October 8.
"The Russian ministry of sports withdraws from the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) from tomorrow to ensure RUSADA’s independence and transparency," the ministry said in a press statement.
"The Russian ministry of sports declares its commitment to the principles of clean sport and expresses confidence that now that RUSADA has no administrative levers of influence, it will swiftly restore its reliability and performance," the ministry said.
In early September, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said that the ministry of sport would soon be withdrawn from RUSADA’s founders. The statement followed pronouncements by Vitaly Smirnov, the head of the independent public anti-doping commission, that the ministry of sport should not be a go-between in RUSADA financing. Money should go right from the budget, he said.
