MOSCOW – All-Russia Athletics Federation Acting President Vadim Zelichenok confirmed their response to the allegations of corruption and doping cover-ups published in the World Anti-Doping Agency Independent Commission were sent to IAAF.
But insisted they were not guilty of systematic violations and should not be banned from the sport.
AP informs that ARAF says it will partially admit to the charges leveled against it by the World Anti-Doping Agency commission.
Zelichenok says that in the response ''we admit some things, we argue with some things, some are already fixed, it's a variety,'' but declined to provide further details, saying ''it's not for the press.''
The IAAF Council will meet via conference call on Friday, ARAF general secretary Mikhail Butov is the member of the council.
