MOSCOW, December 28. /TASS/. A new building housing the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory, which is managed by the Moscow State University (MSU), was unveiled on Friday.

MSU head Viktor Sadovnichy attended the official ceremony to open the new facility of the Moscow Anti-Doping Lab.

“We have been granted a permission to put the facility into operation” Sadovnichy said. “The laboratory has been legally certified for work…”

“If we speak about the infrastructure, I can say that our laboratory is one of the most powerful,” he said. “However, we are not speaking here about the amount of doping tests, but about the infrastructure.”

The previous building, housing the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory, was closed several years ago, as it was stripped of the global accreditation in 2016 in the wake of alleged anti-doping rules violations. The old building of the laboratory still holds data on all collected doping samples, but the facility was sealed off due to a federal investigation.
