The Minister of sport Vitaly Mutko

Obtained by the newspaper the New York Times data on doping of Russian athletes at Olimpiskij games in Sochi are absurd. TASS said the Minister of sport Vitaly Mutko.

“This is a great article, it should be moved, to draw conclusions from the point of view of legal evaluation. The names of the athletes? I believe these guys are outstanding athletes, the accusations are absurd,” – said Mutko.

The former head of the Moscow anti-doping laboratory, Grigory Rodchenkov in an interview with NYT stated that dozens of Russian athletes, including 15 gold medals, had used doping during the Games-2014.
