VLADIMIR, October 11. /TASS/. The Russian draft state budget stipulates direct financing of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) starting next year, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Tuesday.
"An amendment on RUSADA reformation is ready and I am confident that it will be passed by lawmakers and the parliament on the whole," Dvorkovich said during a session of the Presidential Council on the Physical Training and Sport.
"Finally, we are talking about the direct financing of RUSADA and we had relevant consultations with the Finance Ministry," Dvorkovich said. "The relevant budget spending item should be included when the country’s financial plan is approved. The government will certainly support this measure."
The high-ranking Russian official said that the future financing of RUSADA would be direct with no intermediaries involved.
Starting this year doping control over anti-doping regulations in Russian sports has been exercised by RUSADA strictly under the supervision of the British anti-doping agency (UKAD).
Russia’s independent non-governmental anti-doping commission under Vitaly Smirnov is establishing a dialog with the International Paralympic Committee over restoring the Russian Paralympic Committee’s membership.
"We have agreed on cooperation with the Paralympic Committee and we are building a dialog with the International Paralympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). I do hope that the dialog will end with the restoration of Russian Paralympic Committee’s membership."
The International Paralympic Committee on August 7 suspended the Russian Paralympic Committee’s membership, which was used as an excuse for banning all Russian parathletes from the Rio de Janeiro Games.
