MOSCOW, October 19. /TASS/. An independent public anti-doping commission led by Vitaly Smirnov will investigate the operation of the doping control system in Russia in 2010-2015, says a press release after the commission’s meeting.
The commission held its meeting in Moscow on Wednesday.
The meeting in particular discussed the results of the meeting of the Russian presidential council on development of physical culture and sports, the operation of the commission’s relevant committees, as well as interaction with disciplinary commissions of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
"The commission’s meeting also raised the issue of cooperation with IOC disciplinary commissions led by Guy Canivet and Denis Oswald. Thus, the commission of Mr. Canivet sent a letter to Smirnov, which, along with expression of intentions to expand cooperation, voiced a number of serious questions regarding organization of work of the doping control system in our country in 2010-2015," the press release said.
"In order to clarify these circumstances, the commission [led by Smirnov] sent relevant requests to the Russian Sports Ministry and its subordinate organizations - Russia’s Olympic Committee, Russia’s Paralympic Committee and separate sports federations. After the commission receives responses, it will conduct its own investigation," it said.
The commission’s members exchanged opinions regarding the latest decisions on Russia’s Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) and the Moscow anti-doping laboratory.
