MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russia will start payments on the anti-doping system, worth $15 million, in due time, in accordance with the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) demands, head of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) Alexander Zhukov said Saturday.

"In due time," head of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) Alexander Zhukov said answering the corresponding question.

Earlier in December, the IOC Executive Board decided to suspend the Russian National Olympic Committee over what it said was systematic manipulation of the anti-doping system. Among other punishments, the IOC demanded payments for the development of the international anti-doping system. However, a poll conducted on December 22, by widely-known Russian pollster revealed that almost two-thirds (62 percent) of Russians support the decision of the country’s athletes to participate in the 2018 Winter.

The WADA later assessed the evidence against many of them as insufficient.
