    The Institute of National Anti-Doping Organizations (iNADO) and several anti-doping agencies call on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to ban Russia from the upcoming Summer Olympics, the German anti-doping body said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — An independent commission led by Canadian law professor Richard McLaren presented a report accusing Russia of having run a state-sponsored doping program.

    "Together with other national anti-doping organizations, including the US, Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Norway and iNADO… we demand from IOC the exclusion of Russian athletes. This has been underscored in a joint letter to IOC President Thomas Bach," the statement by Germany’s National Anti-Doping Agency NADA said.

    NADA chief executive Andrea Gotzmann said in the statement that every person and every institution that ignores WADA anti-doping rules must face consequences of their action.
