Russian investigators prove nonexistence of state sponsored doping scheme - minister

"Conclusions drawn by the Investigative Committee confirm our stance and prove that Russian Federation is innocent of mass doping abuse (accusations)".

"The Investigative Committee has done serious work, the evidence of Rodchenkov's illegal activities has been collected, there is a reason to believe that he acted as part of an global organized crime group, the aim of which was to discredit Russian athletes and our anti-doping system", Degtyarev, the chairman of the Russian parliament's lower house Committee for Physical Culture, Sport, Tourism and Youth Affairs, told R-Sport.

None of them confirmed the existence of a certain doping program.

The Olympic fate of some Russian athletes is up in the air after a whistleblower alerted officials to Russia's alleged state-sponsored doping scheme during the Sochi games.

The investigators also questioned construction workers, security guards and maintenance personnel who worked during the Sochi Olympics and inspected various premises used as an anti-doping laboratory without finding proof of the WADA allegations.

The report was largely based on the testimony of the former head of a Moscow anti-doping lab Grigory Rodchenkov, who fled to the United States at the end of 2015, becoming an informant for WADA.

The Russian Investigative Committee announced on Wednesday that it would seek Rodchenkov's extradition to Russia. Report McLaren served as the basis for the conclusions of WADA about the presence in Russian Federation of the state program for support of doping.

Moscow has opened a criminal case against Rodchenkov on charges of official misconduct and the destruction of athletes' doping samples and put him on an worldwide wanted list.

"I believe that the evidence provided by the Investigative Committee will be taken into account during further decisions of all global sports organizations in regard to Russian athletes", Kolobkov added.
