Informant of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Grigory Rodchenkov made new "exposures" regarding the use of doping in Russian sports. This time, Mr. Rodchenkov, whose testimonies are quoted in the next film of the notorious journalist Hayo Zeppelta, aimed at football. According to the former head of the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory, who was hiding in the United States, in 2014 he was ordered to hide all the positive results of Russian football players. According to him, the order Gregory Rodchenkov received from Vitaly Mutko fulfilled.
Scandalously famous journalist Hayo Zeppelt released another film on the subject of Russian doping. The central figure of the film "Football Friends of Russia", shown by the ARD television channel, was Grigory Rodchenkov, a WADA informant hiding in the United States. This time, the ex-head of the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory, whose statements were already expensive for Russian sports, aimed at football, which is not surprising, given that the world championship starts in mid-June.
According to Grigory Rodchenkov, in 2014 the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory received from Vitaly Mutko, at that time the Minister of Sport of the Russian Federation, an order not to give a course to the cases in which Russian players were involved. Grigory Rodchenkov explained that it was about concealing the facts of the use of illegal drugs by all players of Russian clubs, regardless of the division in which they performed.
"I received an order from Mutko that we do not need positive results in testing in football," said Grigory Rodchenkov. "Do not touch football, okay?" He told me. He was my boss, and I followed the order. " In ARD they also added that they have a certain document, in which the numbers of samples taken from the players are compared with their names. Note that the samples must be impersonal, and the leakage of data about who they belong to is a gross violation and compromises the anti-doping authorities. In this case, the Moscow laboratory.
Note that Russian players have already fallen into the number of suspects in violation of anti-doping rules (although no names were called). As early as the end of last year, WADA handed over to the International Football Federation data relating to the trials of one and a half hundred Russian players. However, the development of history has not yet received - according to the official version, FIFA is checking.
