“Four years before the Sochi [Olympic Games] I left for Europe and had been training there… I undergone all the doping tests in Europe where I was training. As soon as I began training with the foreigners, I used their hint and started to collect results of my [doping] examinations. This folder [with the examinations results] is with me at the moment,” he told R-Sport.
He added the he would file a lawsuit against Rodchenkov if deems so necessary.
