“The revocation of the compliance status of the RUSADA, which is the key element of the Russian anti-doping system and which within a short period of time not only restored in full its operability, but became one of the best in the world as it was confirmed by the WADA audit several weeks ago, would lead to the sports self-isolation of Russia,” Ganus stated.

“We are on the brink of an abyss and I ask you to protect the present and the future of our clean sports, the present and next generations of our athletes,” Ganus stated in his message.
