MOSCOW, October 25. /TASS/. The fight against doping abuse in sports should be waged by common efforts on a global scale and it should not be restricted by awareness-raising work in Russia only, two-time Olympic Champion Yelena Isinbayeva told TASS on Tuesday.
Recently established Russian Independent Anti-Doping Commission held on Tuesday its first educational seminar attended by heads of Russian sports federations, famous athletes and experts from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
"Doping is the global problem and our guests today confirmed this fact," Isinbayeva said in an interview with TASS. "However, it is realistic to eradicate this problem by joining efforts and not only within the frames of an awareness-raising work in a certain country."
"The rules must be the same for everyone despite the religious affiliations or the color of the skin and it is stipulated by the Olympic Charter," Isinbayeva, who was elected on August 21 as Russia’s representative in the IOC Athletes’ Commission, added.
On July 25, the Russian Olympic Committee’s Executive Board approved the establishment of the independent public anti-doping commission.
The decision to form the commission came after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced in mid-July that the ROC could set up an independent public commission on the issues of fight against the abuse of performance enhancing drugs.
The presidential proposal followed an array of sanctions against the Russian sports on accusations of doping abuse.
