Peskov emphasised that Russia was prepared to continue cooperating with international authorities regarding the allegations.

World Anti-Doping Agency

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said late Monday it will decide on Dec. 9 on recommendations from its compliance review committee which wants Russia banned for four years from international competition under its own flag – including the 2020 and 2022 Olympics for the manipulation of data from the Moscow anti-doping laboratory.

The IOC said on Tuesday that it would “support the toughest sanctions against all those responsible” while at the same time saying that Russian sports authorities were not involved in the latest wrongdoing.

Winter Games

This suggests that the IOC wants Russian athletes to compete at Tokyo 2020 and the Beijing 2022 Winter Games as neutral athletes, as at Pyeongchang 2018.
