MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia is ready to assist the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in the investigation of the recent hacker attack on its database if it receives a request to do so, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.
"Certainly, if an appeal comes. Russia has consistently advocated for the fight against cybercrime, consistently invited all states and international organizations to cooperate in this field," Peskov told reporters.
Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said earlier his ministry planned to ask law enforcement agencies to provide assistance to WADA in the probe.
Peskov has ruled out Russian involvement in the alleged cyberattack on the WADA database.
