    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the latest documentary on doping in Russia by German broadcaster ARD is nothing but defamation.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The latest documentary on doping in Russia by German broadcaster ARD is nothing but defamation, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    "In this case, we still consider it unproven slander. We are still convinced that doping must be fought. This fight is constantly carried out in our country, including in line with the Russian president's instructions," Peskov said, noting that the information presented in the film is unconvincing.
