Russia: «Positive information, if true» — Kolobkov on reports athletes cleared to compete

Russian Minister of Sports Pavel Kolobkov spoke to journalists in Moscow, Wednesday, commenting on the reports that WADA has cleared 95 Russian athletes of doping charges. Kolobkov did not confirm the reports, as «first of all, it is not official information. This is information from New York Times, and neither WADA nor anybody else has made any statements on this.» He, however, noted that this... Еще news, if true, could be a result of Russia's «joint work with WADA». «We are working with them constantly during many years already», Kolobkov explained, before saying, «We will continue working with the foreign organisations on reinstating the rights of our athletes to participate in all competitions». Previously the New York Times reported that WADA was to clear 95 Russian athletes accused on doping charges. The information comes from the leaked internal report.
