Current and former officials of the anti-doping organizations have criticized the decision of the IOC
Current and former officials of the anti-doping organizations have criticized the decision of the International Olympic Committee, which did not prohibit the participation in this year's summer Olympics athletes across all Russian state doping program in the country.

As the head of the Institute of national anti-doping organizations of 59 such organizations where Pansye Joseph, it was a "sad day for the" pure "sports", and the IOC "could not respond to the evidence strongly supported by the state of doping in Russia, destroying Russian sports system. "

LOC "ignored calls" clean "athletes of many sports organizations and leading national anti-doping organizations to act justly and to exclude Russia from the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro," said in its statement.

Also with sharp criticism was made the head of the US Anti-Doping Agency Travis Tayґart. "Disappointing that the answer to the most important point to" clean "athletes and the integrity of the Olympic Games the IOC refused to lead decisively forward. The decision on the part of ... - is a significant blow to the rights of "clean" athletes "- said in its statement.

Critical of the decision and the former head of the World Anti-Doping Agency Richard Pound, who has an independent expert to investigate the earliest reports of widespread doping in sport Russia in December 2014. As he said today, the IOC had a "tremendous opportunity to make a strong statement, and wasted it," testified "zero tolerance for doping, unless it is Russian."

Earlier on Sunday, the IOC announced its decision that Russian athletes are allowed to participate in this year's Summer Olympics only if the implementation of a number of conditions which must confirm for each or each international federation of their sports.

These federations are guided by the World Anti-Doping Code and other Olympic principles individually analyze the history of the use or disuse of doping each athlete, taking into account only the results of trusted international tests. The absence of positive national tests for doping can not be considered sufficient.

In order to participate in the games can not be admitted athletes against whom there is evidence of the use of doping in the independent report, prepared for the World Anti-Doping Agency and released recently. Also, the games can not be admitted athletes, though ever been punished for doping use, even if the ban them already coincidence.

International Federation also have the right to impose sanctions on national goals respective sports federations.

IOC agrees with the participation of each Russian athlete in this year's games only if the decision on the admission of international federations also support the experts approved the Sport Arbitration Court and independent of any sports organization involved in the Olympics this year.

The IOC also said that all Russian athletes admitted will be more rigorous checks on doping.

The IOC, in addition, has reserved the right to take further sanctions on the results of the expanded independent report on the state doping program sport in Russia, to be prepared.

Earlier, the International Association of Athletic Federations has banned all Russian athletes participating in the Olympic Games in Brazil Rio de Janeiro, allowing only individual exceptions. This decision confirmed the Sports Arbitration Court. After this decision the IOC participation in the games will take only one Russian athlete, and she can not act under the Russian flag.

Scandals about reports of the existence of a state program for athletes use doping and hiding it began last fall; at a time when the ban on participation in all international competitions, including the Olympics, Russian athletes were caught. July 18 World Anti-Doping Agency published a report prepared by an independent expert, which proved the existence of the program. As expected, the report will now expanded to give a final conclusion on the amount of "state doping" in Russia. In Ukrainian/український

Trump & Putin. Yes, It's Really a Thing

Over the last year there has been a recurrent refrain about the seeming bromance between Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. More seriously, but relatedly, many believe Trump is an admirer and would-be emulator of Putin's increasingly autocratic and illiberal rule. But there's quite a bit more to the story. At a minimum, Trump appears to have a deep financial dependence on Russian money from persons close to Putin. And this is matched to a conspicuous solicitousness to Russian foreign policy interests where they come into conflict with US policies which go back decades through administrations of both parties. There is also something between a non-trivial and a substantial amount of evidence suggesting Putin-backed financial support for Trump or a non-tacit alliance between the two men.

Let me start by saying I'm no Russia hawk. I have long been skeptical of US efforts to extend security guarantees to countries within what the Russians consider their 'near abroad' or extend such guarantees and police Russian interactions with new states which for centuries were part of either the Russian Empire or the USSR. This isn't a matter of indifference to these countries. It is based on my belief in seriously thinking through the potential costs of such policies. In the case of the Baltics, those countries are now part of NATO. Security commitments have been made which absolutely must be kept. But there are many other areas where such commitments have not been made. My point in raising this is that I do not come to this question or these policies as someone looking for confrontation or cold relations with Russia.

Let's start with the basic facts. There is a lot of Russian money flowing into Trump's coffers and he is conspicuously solicitous of Russian foreign policy priorities.

I'll list off some facts.

1. All the other discussions of Trump's finances aside, his debt load has grown dramatically over the last year, from $350 million to $630 million. This is in just one year while his liquid assets have also decreased. Trump has been blackballed by all major US banks.

2. Post-bankruptcy Trump has been highly reliant on money from Russia, most of which has over the years become increasingly concentrated among oligarchs and sub-garchs close to Vladimir Putin. Here's a good overview from The Washington Post, with one morsel for illustration ...

Since the 1980s, Trump and his family members have made numerous trips to Moscow in search of business opportunities, and they have relied on Russian investors to buy their properties around the world.

“Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Trump’s son, Donald Jr., told a real estate conference in 2008, according to an account posted on the website of eTurboNews, a trade publication. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

3. One example of this is the Trump Soho development in Manhattan, one of Trump's largest recent endeavors. The project was the hit with a series of lawsuits in response to some typically Trumpian efforts to defraud investors by making fraudulent claims about the financial health of the project. Emerging out of that litigation however was news about secret financing for the project from Russia and Kazakhstan. Most attention about the project has focused on the presence of a twice imprisoned Russian immigrant with extensive ties to the Russian criminal underworld. But that's not the most salient part of the story. As the Times put it,.....................

EOC to discuss staging of 2019 European Games with other potential hosts

The move comes after the IOC rules out backing any sports event in Russia

The European Olympic Committees (EOC) has said it will "maintain ongoing discussions" with other potential host cities of the 2019 European Games after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) confirmed today that it will not organise and give patronage to any sport event or meeting in Russia, the nation seen as firm favourites to stage the second edition in three years' time.

The IOC’s decision is one of a number of provisional measures taken by its Executive Board following the release of the damning McLaren Report here yesterday into alleged state-sponsored doping during the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, as well as in competitions in summer sports.

The report showed the Sports Ministry "directed, controlled and oversaw" a "unique" method of sample manipulation at Sochi 2014, involving a sample-swapping method where they were able to open and reseal tamper-proof bottles.

It comes as a major blow to EOC President Patrick Hickey, whose dream of preserving the European Games rests on persuading Russia, effectively their only realistic option, to host the 2019 edition.....
