The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has sent a request to the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) for the Sputnik V vaccine, TASS reports.
The press service of the agency noted that they had asked the Russian organization to contact the manufacturer and provide data on the exact composition and properties of the drug, as well as any additional information.
“WADA has no reason to believe that there are any problems with this vaccine from the point of view of anti-doping rules,” explained a spokesman.
He added that similar requests have been sent to other countries where vaccines against coronavirus are produced.
Note that now in the world, in addition to the Russian drug, vaccines developed in the USA, Great Britain, China, Germany and India are used.
Earlier it became known that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) appointed a rapporteur to conduct a gradual examination of the Russian vaccine “Sputnik V”.
