MOSCOW, December 9. /TASS/. The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) must demonstrate that its processes are truly autonomous, independent from outside interference, World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) director general Olivier Niggli said.
On Friday, the World Anti-Doping Agency released the second part of the report into doping in Russia compiled by Canadian sports lawyer Richard McLaren.
"While some progress has been made with RUSADA’s efforts to regain compliance with the Code, there remain a number of challenges that must be addressed before that can happen," Niggli said. "RUSADA must demonstrate that its processes are truly autonomous, independent from outside interference and properly resourced for the task of protecting clean athletes both in Russia and abroad. Only once RUSADA, and its governing structures, has successfully demonstrated that it can achieve such independence, will athletes and the broader public regain faith in Russian sport," he concluded.
