MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. The actions of the leadership of the International Association of athletics federations (IAAF), which is in contact with the all-Russian athletics Federation (vfla) through its various committees, are incorrect. The journalists said the Vice-Premier of the Russian Federation Vitaly Mutko.
Last week the President of the IAAF Sebastian CoE noted that wfla has ceased to progress in fulfilling the criteria rendered to restore membership in the international Federation. CoE stressed that the questions raised and the anti-doping system and the work of the coaches involved in doping scandals, and work with informants.
“We need to continue work on the restoration of RUSADA. We saw all the statements of the CoE, for me, quite understand the position of the head of the international Federation, which is responsible for the development of the sport worldwide . In my understanding, if your organization’s problems, the combat is fun, gather athletes and coaches, help, if you think that the organization is not properly managed. But to sit in the office and work through the endless so-called independent Commission is, of course, a way in anywhere”, – said Mutko.
“Strange timing, criteria and requirements. It’s not sports, but I will say again that we will continue to work,” he added.
Membership of the club at the IAAF was suspended in November 2015 on the basis of the investigation conducted by the Commission, to Richard pound, the reason for this was allegations of Vitaly and Yulia Stepanova in the films of the German TV channel ARD about the allegedly existing in Russia system of doping athletes. The IAAF took the decision at the time of deprivation of membership of the club in this organization to allow Russian athletes that meet its criteria, to participate in international competitions under a neutral flag. In addition Stepanova, tolerance received 11 Russian athletes, including Maria Kuchina (Lasicka), Sergey Shubenkov, Darya Klishina, Daniil Tsyplakov and Anzhelika Sidorova. To restore a Russian organization, the IAAF has established a special working group (inspection panel).
