“I believe that the situation in Russia itself has changed - of course, there are still anti-doping rule violators there, as in any country, but we no longer have to deal with the unprecedented system of doping support organized with the help of the government, which once shocked the world of sports ”, - quotes the words of Rzeczpospolita Banja.

On December 17, 2020, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) partially upheld WADA's claim against RUSADA, depriving the Russian organization of its compliance status with the World Anti-Doping Code.

Russian athletes have lost the opportunity to play under the flag and anthem of the country at the World Championships and the Olympic Games until December 16, 2022.

The Russian authorities have repeatedly denied claims that the country has a support system for doping in sports.

Earlier it was reported that Banka spoke about the work to restore the status of RUSADA.
