"In general, we are committed to the idea of the Russian president… of the inadmissibility and unacceptability of any manifestations of doping in sport… and [idea of] the maximum possible cooperation with relevant international structures. As regards different reports devoted to the problem, you know that there are several issues we do not agree with," Peskov said at a press briefing, answering the question whether Moscow should accept the results of McLaren report.
In 2015, WADA accused Russia of multiple anti-doping violations and suspended the RUSADA's Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory. In 2016, McLaren presented two-part report on anti-doping violations in Russia, which alleged the existence of state-supported doping system. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov have repeatedly denied these accusations, while admitting that Russian sports did have some doping-related issues.
