MOSCOW, November 10. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has handed down instructions to improve the national anti-doping system.
A list of the relevant instructions was approved by the president following a meeting of the State Council on Physical Fitness and Sports held on October 11.
The anti-doping measures particularly include an assessment of the direct budget funding for the All-Russia Anti-Doping Organization, and stipulate amending the current legislation if necessary. Besides that, the plan envisages the implementation of Russia’s commitments on providing funding to the World Anti-Doing Agency from the federal budget. A national anti-doping laboratory is planned to be set up at the Moscow State University that would part of its science and education center.
The president also requested the State Duma (lower house of parliament) to work with the government to review the federal law that excludes the federal sports agencies from the national anti-doping organization founders, and adopt this law during the autumn session.
