Outraged, the minister responds to scandal: 'This is completely unacceptable'

Excluded from all international sporting events in four years. It was the judgment, which The world anti-doping agency, Wada, officially gave Russia Monday.

It is a resolution that welcomes the Danish minister of culture, Rasmus Prehn (S), which is at the same time not holding back over the scandal, now finally get the consequences.

"a fundamental prerequisite for A strong global anti-doping system is that there will be crackdown on those who violate the international anti-doping rules, regardless of who it might be. It is good that WADA has revealed the new scandal, and that the truth is coming for the day. And it is positive to WADA in the light of the gravity of the case will activate the strictest sanctions," he writes in an email to B. T.

the Penalties from Wada concretely means that Russia will miss the OLYMPICS in 2020 and the winter OLYMPICS in 2022. The exclusion, however, will not affect Russia's EM-participation to the summer, because the country is qualified and the host country for the finals.

in Addition to the OLYMPICS-the exclusion, so that means today's decision, that Russia not be allowed to attend the football WORLD cup in 2022, writes English Sky Sports.

the Decision from Wada came on the basis of Russia for a number of years has seen large on anti-doping rules by manipulating provided antidopingdata, before the data was handed over to Wada.

And it is something that can really get the minister for culture up in the red field.

"of Course I am outraged by the whole situation. It is totally unacceptable that a country on the way trying to mislead the Wada and the world through the systematic manipulation of dopingdata," says Rasmus Prehn (S) and continues:

"I hope that we internationally can learn from this scandal, as the international fight against doping forward can be strengthened on the basis of the knowledge that has come to light and that the scandal may eventually lead to a stronger global anti-doping system and a stronger international cooperation in this area."

however, There is still a possibility that Russian athletes can still participate in the sport itself. If they can prove that they have not been a part of the Russian dopingprogram and at the same time choose to put up under the neutral flag, there is a green light for participation.

And that part is certainly not something that pleases Wadas vice president, Linda Hofstad Helleland, who does not believe that it is a hard punishment at all. You can read more about here.

Russia has the opportunity to appeal against Monday's decision to The International court of arbitration for sport (CAS), but it must be done within 21 days.

If Russia chooses to appeal the decision, will the russians may be able to participate in sporting events, until CAS traps judgment in the case.
