The World Anti-Doping Agency announced that Russia met the deadline as part of a massive doping investigation.

The Russian authorities had returned a timely response to the WADA regarding the data retrieved from the Russian laboratory back in January 2019.

The Russian authorities had returned a timely response to the WADA regarding the data retrieved from the Russian laboratory back in January 2019.The World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) had retrieved some data from a laboratory in Moscow in January 2019, following a September 2017 decision to open a formal compliance procedure against the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA). The Russian agency filed its response with the WADA in October 2019, well within the prescribed time to file the response. Previously, many Russian athletes had failed the doping tests after the winter Olympics held in Pyeongchang. As a result, the respective athletes were stripped of their medals.

In December 2019, the WADA's executive committee declared the RUSADA as non-compliant and banned them from participating in international events for four years. The declaration had been based on the recommendations by an Independent Compliance Review Committee (CRC). The CRC had submitted a 25-page report, including forensic evidence to show intentional data tampering by the RUSADA.
