The secret case of doping. Hour X for Russia.
The fourth part of the movie by ARD, a German TV channel, which was made by Hajo Seppelt, tells us about the complicity of the Sports Minister Vitaliy Mutko in doping cases, in particular in frauds during the Premier League. The movie was released last night, on 8th of June. Russian authorities have already reacted saying that it is slander. Now, the scandal has begun to lead to Russian athletes being disqualified, and possibly to the disqualification of the whole team before the Olympic Games. Previously, in the movies, it was found that even the FSB took part in the frauds involving testing Russian sportsmen, who participated in the last Olympic Games in Sochi. In the movie, it was also found that disqualified couches still play a role in the trainings of Russian sportsmen. It is a politicized question. Today we spoke to the author of the movie Hajo Seppelt about the impact of the movie on Russian team and sport in general.
