Quotes from the news wire:
I do not see any major reasons why our athletes should not be allowed to compete at the Olympics. I believe the punishments for doping should always be at an individual level, those sportsmen who have a chance to go to Rio will undergo at least three additional doping tests. This is an unprecedented check. I hope the IAAF will take into account the efforts that Russia is taking.
We need to create an anti-doping system which everyone has faith in, in order to not return to Sochi (2014), Beijing or London (2012).
We have taken the decision to introduce this special law to make doping, and those attempting to take performance-enhancing drugs, a criminal offence.
This is legally impossible. If Russia is competing in the Olympics in Rio then it will compete under its own flag.
We are ready ... to either reform or create a new anti-doping organization, we are ready for wide cooperation.
