"You can't punish the victim for what she suffered. We believe that as a result of the manipulation affected not only athletes, but WADA and the IOC. Accreditation really does WADA, but we have professionals who are not aware of what is happening. Therefore it is impossible to lay responsibility on the victims of fraud, not to punish the victim for system manipulation," said Bach at a press conference.

Recall, December 6, the IOC decided not to allow the Russian team to the Olympics 2018 in Korea. Russian athletes will be able to compete under a neutral flag.

The IOC made the decision based on the work of two committees, one headed by Denis Oswald was involved in retesting doping samples Russian athletes from the Olympics in Sochi. According to the results of its work Russia lost 11 awards and lost first place in the team standings. The second Commission, headed by former Swiss President Samuel Schmid was checking information about a possible state intervention in the Russian anti-doping system. The two commissions began work after the investigation by WADA under the leadership of substitution of doping tests Russian biathletes, with the participation of the FSB.
