Hajelt, who has been a leader in revealing doping data around East Germany, China, Kenya and Russia, was also the one who revealed the doping at the Seefeld Ski World Championships last winter, a process that is still ongoing.

According to Seppelt, the information has led the anti-doping agency Wada to launch an investigation against the Russian anti-doping authority Rusada. Wada will be informed at a meeting in Tokyo next week, something that Sputnik News also writes about.

Earlier this week, nine Russian athletes sued the French newspaper L'Equipe after an interview with Russian anti-doping chief Yuri Ganus, who accused the athletes of using illegal blood transfusions.

Ganus has backed a clue about certain word choices but claims that the spirit is correct and that it is not fakenews.
