    Russian authorities will continue the consistent fight against doping, but will defend the athletes who have nothing to do with it, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Friday, Canadian sports law professor Richard McLaren will present the second part of his report on the alleged doping abuse in Russia.

    "The Kremlin is ready for unconditional, consistent and rather active defense of interests of our athletes which have never had anything to do with toping … The Kremlin is ready to continue the consistent fight against doping as a phenomenon and to establish an appropriate system of fighting doping," Peskov told reporters.

    "We are ready, of course, to take in detailed information regarding the claims which are made in such documents. As you know, detailed information was never provided and many of the allegations were rather abstract," the Kremlin spokesman added.
