Vladimir Putin says Russia’s doping scandal ‘created’ by FBI
Russia’a president Vladimir Putin has accused USA’s FBI of manipulating evidence on the doping scandal involving a number of athletes from his country. Speaking to reporters, Putin questioned the evidence brought forward by whistle-blower Grigory Rodchenkov. “He (Grigory Rodchenkov) is working under the control of American special services, what are they doing with him? What kind of substances is he given so that he says what is required. It is ridiculous. And thirdly, “it is all written in his dairies” so what? Where was that written, how had he written that - nobody knows. And there is nothing more,” he said.
