LAUSANNE, October 8. /TASS/. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) should justify its right for extra funding, Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) President Aleksander Zhukov told reporters on Saturday.

"Both the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and governments may increase WADA financing," Zhukov said. "Nonetheless, just in case a program is outlined in a clear-cut way how the anti-doping system all around the world could be improved. A working group has been set up for the purpose and it should work out specific proposals on the basis on the principles defined today."

"Nobody is going to terminate WADA as an organization but its operation should be more balanced, more transparent and more efficient," he said.

On Saturday, Lausanne hosted an IOC summit, which goal was to formulate suggestions on WADA reforming.
