Putin says Russia is fully complying with WADA anti-doping requirements
MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday in televised comments that Russia was fully complying with demands made by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
The anti-doping agency said last month it had opened compliance proceedings against Russia's anti-doping agency after examining the vast bank of historical testing data it received in January.
WADA confirmed on Tuesday that it had received a response to questions on inconsistencies in the data from Russia's authorities but did not give a timeline on how long it will take to complete the compliance procedure.
