    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The second part of the report on the alleged doping abuse in Russia will be released by Canadian law professor Richard McLaren on December 9, WADA's press service said Sunday.

    "WADA confirms that the second part of the independent McLaren report will be published on 9 December," the press service posted on its Twitter account.

    ​In July, McLaren presented a report based on the investigation results, in which Russia was accused of running a state-wide doping program.

    Following the report, Russian President Vladimir Putin vowed to suspend officials named in the report and stated that Russia would carry out an investigation of the allegations. The Russian leader also warned against politicizing sport and using it as a geopolitical tool.
