MOSCOW, January 8. /TASS/. It was unsportsmanlike of UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) Chair David Kenworthy to call for suspending Russian athletes from the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in South Korea’s PyeongChang, Russian Deputy Prime Minister in charge of sports, tourism and youth policy Vitaly Mutko told TASS on Sunday.
In an interview with BBC, Kenworthy said the Russian team should be suspended from the 2018 Winter Olympics over the doping scandal.
"It is so unsportsmanlike. We are paying big money for their work. They have been working with us for a year already. He should have supported us instead," Mutko said.
In November 2015, the board of founders of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) approved the decision of the agency’s Independent Committee that the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) did not comply with the Code of the international anti-doping organization. Later, it was decided that UKAD would help RUSADA to exercise doping control. The two agencies signed a cooperation agreement in late January 2016.
