Quickly was added that the government (also Putin) did not know about it, what fits with the words that Putin always said, that there is not such a thing as systematic doping.
Putin, the man that knows everything, should not be aware of this.
Do you believe it?
Do you believe that he knew nothing from the shameless force that Russia had in the shameful elections in America?
Appearantly it doesn't matter if he knows or not.
Russia is just doing the things that they want to do and no one is stopping them. More examples? Syria, Ukraine.
Still doubts? Ask the opposition newspapers and politicians.
There is no reason to doubt about where the wordl power is. How long will 'the rest of the world' be able to deny that? Or is it better to pretend of not seeing it, because as soon as you see it it is a problem?
Just like telling that there is no doping industry?
Good that the sun is not shining. Our Kitchen is not that dusty at all ....
A few hours later, the Russian 'anti doping office' added a statement that the words as appeared in the New York times are false interpreteted. There is no 'mass dope fraud', the western media interpeted the information false.
