Russia’s Olympic Committee implicated the nation’s anti-doping agency on Monday of commanding serious financial irregularities, mounting pressure on the organisation entrusted with clearing up Russia’s sporting image.

Yuri Ganus, the firm’s head, denies the allegation, casting it as part of a project against his organisation that he said obstructs its anti-doping push.

Stanislav Pozdnyakov, head of Russia’s Olympic Committee, stated an audit of anti-doping agency RUSADA’s monetary activity in 2018 and 2019 had actually determined a number of “considerable violations”.

The new assertions intensified corruption allegations aired against Ganus on social networks recently, alleging that he had misused the firm’s funds.

Though only on social networks, those allegations triggered Ganus to assemble a press conference on Friday where he declined the accusations as “a pack of lies” created to reject his company.

” The attack continues,” Ganus informed Reuters on Monday.

RUSADA was suspended in 2015 after the World Anti-Doping Company (WADA) found proof of mass doping in Russian sports.

The firm was conditionally reinstated in September 2018, but was declared non-compliant late last year after WADA discovered Moscow had actually offered it with doctored laboratory information.

It has given that appealed versus a four-year restriction on Russian professional athletes completing at significant international sporting occasions under their flag as penalty for that alteration of laboratory information.

The case will be heard at the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in November.
