Putin: the responsibility of the athletes for doping should be personalized

The responsibility of the athletes for doping should be personalized. This opinion was expressed by Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting with representatives of news agencies in the framework of St. Petersburg international economic forum (SPIEF).

“Why should suffer clean athletes? This to me is absolutely not clear,” – said Putin, noting that “this does not fit into any framework of civilized behavior.” The head of state expressed the hope that it will be possible to find a solution to the situation with the Russian athletes.

Recall that on 17 June, the international Association of athletics federations (IAAF) unanimously decided to uphold the disqualification of the all-Russian athletics Federation (vfla). The chance to participate in the Olympic games in 2016, the athletes proved their “purity”, is stored. Russians will be able to participate in international tournaments, provided the speech is not the flag of the Russian Federation.
