MOSCOW (Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday in televised comments that Russia was fully complying with demands made by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

The anti-doping agency said last month it had opened compliance proceedings against Russia’s anti-doping agency after examining the vast bank of historical testing data it received in January.

WADA confirmed on Tuesday that it had received a response to questions on inconsistencies in the data from Russia’s authorities but did not give a timeline on how long it will take to complete the compliance procedure.
