Mutko said that the publication of the TV channel ARD may not be true. On the eve of the TV journalist, Hyo Seppelt reported that WADA will not return the license of the Russian anti-doping Agency (RUSADA) and the IOC as a result of this decision will suspend the Russian team from participation in the Games. According to Mutko, this kind of publication is deliberately made on the eve of the decision the IOC in order to discredit Russia.

“They [Western media] is already a style — ahead of the meeting of the WADA to produce such materials, and then all deny it. It is thought the operation to discredit Russia. Before December we will see the statements of dozens of athletes, national Olympic committees, interviews are different, which create the illusion [of a negative attitude towards Russia],” said Mutko Agency TASS.

According to Mutko, Seppelt may not know what the decision of the WADA since he is not a member of this Agency. Seppelt also can’t evaluate which the requirements of the WADA fulfilled by the Russian side.
