    MOSCOW, January 27, 2004. (RIA Novosti correspondent Dmitry Budanov) - United European Football Associations will not go for annulling the results of the Russia - Wales game, President of the Russian Football Union (RFU) Vyacheslav Koloskov disclosed at the press-conference.

    According to him, the Football Association of Wales (FAW) has a full right to forward an appeal concerning the annul of the Russia - Wales game results in connection with Russian Egor Titov's bromantan positive blood test. However, Koloskov believes "it's unlikely that UEFA will go for annul of the game's results." The RFU President acknowledges UEFA's accusations against Titov, but evaluates the term of the Russian athlete's punishment as excessive.

    Koloskov believes that Spartak has a right to ask UEFA's disciplinary committee for the commutation. "In the course of his 10-year sports career Egor Titov had never been accused of doping use," Koloskov noted.

    From now on, athletes of the Russian Football Prime League will have an obligatory doping test before each game of the championship, he added.
