The Kremlin considers the decision of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) unfair, which has today ruled that Russia is “uncompliant” to agency guidelines – but the athletes of the Russian Olympic team continue to prepare for the Games in Pyeongchang, as state by Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.

The solution is unpleasant information, continued Peskov. Moscow categorically denies the accusation that there is any state support for the use of doping by athletes. ” There can be no question of that,” Peskov categorically declared.

“We proceed from the recent statement of Thomas Bach that this decision of WADA has no direct relation to the issue of the Olympic Games”, – quotes Peskov
