CHEBOKSARY (Sputnik) – WADA suspended the Moscow anti-doping laboratory run by the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) following the international body independent commission’s November 2015 report accusing Russia of doping violations.
"As for the laboratory, WADA sent us two candidates for the post of its director. We are ready to appoint a Spanish citizen as laboratory director – one whom everyone trusts. We are doing everything they want," Mutko told R-Sport.
In November 2015, WADA's Independent Commission issued a report accusing Russia of numerous breaches of global anti-doping regulations. The IAAF suspended the Russian Athletic Federation's membership as a result.
