RUSADA chief Veronika Loginova said WADA auditors had made a “critical statement” to the agency that needed to be corrected by January 7. According to Loginova, RUSADA sent a letter of disagreement to WADA with this outcome, WADA management backed the auditors, this dispute should be addressed by an independent compliance committee before March. At the WADA symposium, the Bank said that “confidence in the independence of the Russian anti-doping system is very low.”
