Russian President Vladimir Putin says WADA’s decision against Russian sports unfair and has no common sense.
Any punishment for violating anti-doping rules should be individual so that clean athletes won’t suffer, Putin told his annual news conference on Thursday, TASS reports.
"Any punishment should be individual. If anyone is caught, then [punishment] is absolutely natural and fair. But if the overwhelming majority of athletes are clean, how can they slap sanctions on them," Putin said.
