Investigative Committee offers FIFA assistance to analyze information presented by Wada

The Head office of the Investigative Committee continues investigation against former acting director of the Anti-Doping Center Grigory Rodchenkov charged with abuse of power and destruction of doping samples. Investigators are also checking if other persons were involved in manipulation with doping test results.

According to information published by mass media, the FIFA has received from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) some information from the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory concerning results of Russian athletes’ tests, including footballers.

The Russian Investigative Committee has offered the FIFA cooperation in analyzing the information presented by WADA.

The same offer was made to WADA earlier, but the agency has made no steps so far.

Yet again the Russian Investigative Committee declares its readiness to cooperate with international organizations, to exchange information and analyze cases of violation of anti-doping rules by Russian athletes.
