The Presidium of the All-Russian Athletics Federation (ARAF) ruled that from April 10, any anti-doping rule violation, including violations of accessibility rules, and violations associated with the use of all substances and methods of the prohibited list, will be punished. Any violation will make it impossible to be a member of the national team, to lead a regional federation, and so on for a period of at least three years.

“These additional measures are being taken by us to strengthen the responsibility of all those who work now in athletics. And most importantly, we want this to be a responsibility not in words, but in deeds, ”said Eduard Bezuglov, VFLA Vice President, Head of the Federation Anti-Doping Committee.
