A choice to lift the suspension of Russia’s enemy of doping organization has been marked “the greatest treachery against clean athletes”.

The World Anti-Doping Agency has finished a 3-year suspension, which took after a noteworthy scandal over alleged state-supported doping.

Russia’s enemy of doping office (Rusada) had been suspended since 2015 over alleged state-sponsored doping, after it was blamed for concealing drug abuse, while Russia hosted the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

A week ago, Wada’s compliance review board prescribed Rusada’s reestablishment after it got affirmations from the Russian sports ministry, saying the nation had “sufficiently acknowledged” failures.

It should be noted that, anti-doping bodies and leading athletes have strongly opposed this controversial move made by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Wada president Sir Craig Reedie said the reestablishment was “subject to strict conditions”.

9 individuals from the 12-strong official executive panel voted for the recommendation, at a gathering in the Seychelles, with two against and one abstention.

In any case, a legal advisor for Russian informant Grigory Rodchenkov called it “the greatest treachery against clean athletes”.
