Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) decision to ban Russia from all global sport means the country is being punished twice for the same violation. Putin was speaking at his annual press conference at the World Trade Centre in Moscow on Thursday.
Later on Thursday the Russian Anti-Doping Agency’s (RUSADA) Supervisory Board is expected to announce... Еще whether it will appeal WADA's decision.
Last week Russia was handed a four-year ban from all major sporting events by the WADA, including upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo and the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The decision came after RUSADA was declared non-compliant for manipulating the Moscow laboratory data, which was handed over to WADA investigators in January 2019.
