According to Seppelt, this decision may lead to the suspension of the Russian team from participation in the winter Olympics 2018 in South Korea's Pyeongchang, reports Lenta.ru.
"WADA recognizes RUSADA does not comply with the code of the organization, as Russia has not fulfilled the presented requirements — recognition of state intervention in anti-doping program and access to private samples," — said the journalist.
The issue of restoration of RUSADA should be considered at the 16 November meeting of the Council of founders WADA, which will be held in Seoul. RUSADA suspension may affect the chances of the Russians to act in Pyeongchang-2018. RUSADA was recognized as non-compliant to the WADA code 18 Nov 2015.
11 Nov WADA got a database of doping tests Russian athletes, which may entail new sanctions against Russia. According to foreign media reports, the Russian authorities did not want WADA to provide information from this database, and she went to the Agency through an informant.
After that, the Director General of WADA, Olivier Niggli said that the disagreement with the conclusions of the report of the independent Commission under the leadership of Richard McLaren will prevent the Russian athletes to go to Games-2018.
Meanwhile, the former head of the Moscow anti-doping laboratory, Grigory Rodchenkov, who accused Russia of implementation of the state support system of doping, gave the commissions the IOC new information about cases of the use of banned substances by Russian athletes. If the IOC does not exercise his information, Rodchenkov may publicly disclose the known information about the doping system in Russia, reports The Daily Mail.
Independent of the IOC under the leadership of Denis Oswald, and Samuel Schmid, maintain contact with Rodchenkova, which provides them with new information about doping in Russia, reports Sports.ru.
Until November 6 Rodchenkov was to convey the Commission's Oswald-specific information of the Russian athletes, but the IOC then asked to send information, 27 Oct. So on the day of hearing skiers Evgeniy Belov and Alexander Legkov new documents appeared only before the meeting.
In October, the members of the Commission Schmid, investigating the involvement of the government of the Russian doping system, contacted by Rodchenkova, after which he sent them his full statement. If the Commission Schmid does not take into account the information provided by Rodchenkova, he intends to publish information in the press. Likely, new information will affect the non-admission of Russia to the Olympic games in Pyeongchang.
Rodchenkov was led by the Moscow anti-doping laboratory from 2006 to 2015 and in January 2016 fled to the United States, fearing for his life. Ocean scientist has accused Russia of implementation of the state system of support doping, and said the fraud at the Olympic games in Sochi, which, according to him, was directly involved.
He told how he supplied the Russian Olympians before the performance in Sochi doping a powerful cocktail of his own invention, and tests athletes later allegedly tampered with the FSB through the hole in the wall of his lab.
Russian President Vladimir Putin linked Russia's accusations in support of the use of doping by athletes in the upcoming presidential election. The idea of a possible non-admission of the Russian Federation before the Olympics, as well as participation in the tournament under a neutral flag, the President called a "humiliation for Russia".
