The Russian Investigative Committee (RIC) has offered the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to jointly examine a file that the anti-doping agency considers is a database that the Moscow-based Anti-Doping Center used to keep samples of doping tests of Russian athletes in 2012-2015.
Russian Investigative Committee ready to cooperate with WADA — spokesperson | #World— RTGWorld (@RTGWorld) 13 ноября 2017 г.
Svetlana Petrenko, RIC's official representative, said that WADA has said on its website it had obtained a file that contains information about the doping tests of Russian athletes in 2012-2015.
WADA informant Grigory Rodchenkov is currently under investigation in Russia over the abuse of power during his term as the director of the Russian Athletics Federation (RusAF) in 2009-2013. According to the RIC, Rodchenkov gave doping to athletes disguised as vitamins.
The RIC has so far reported interim results of the investigation against Rodchenkov, indicating that there was no evidence of a doping program in Russia, and if there were any violations of the anti-doping rules, they were of an exclusively individual nature.
WADA in November 2015 issued a report accusing Russia of creating a state-sponsored doping system and suspended the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA). The WADA Executive Committee will discuss the reinstatement of the RUSADA at a meeting in Seoul in mid-November.
