But let's start in order.
Let us now put aside a meaningless dispute on the topic of whether or not our athletes "accepted or did not accept" doping in Sochi. Because, as a start, you just need to stop lying and agree that what was submitted by the “independent commission of Richard McLaren” is at least something “legal” and “legal document”. And it has even the slightest relation to the legal field in general.
Everything is simple: no - I emphasize, in general, no! - accusations against specific athletes “participants in the machinations” by the “McLaren Commission” are not made. Moreover, he himself agrees with this, claiming “that he knows everything, but does not want to, and in general he has not been faced with such tasks.” Literally: “I do not have the authority to deal with the processing of the results of tests and the imposition of certain sanctions against athletes. This was not part of my task, I was not asked to do this - that is why I did not do it. ”
It seems that attorney Maclaren simply lies, because in the past he called these "reports". There was simply no evidence of these accusations, and a legally savvy person understands perfectly well what threatens harsh lawsuits from athletes with specific accusations of libel.
Secondly, to the direct question of a journalist, if he has any other evidence at all, besides the unproven testimony of a lonely and odious Rodchenkova, the lawyer is generally enchanting: “Besides Dr. Rodchenkov, we had, let's say, quite a large number of witnesses. But I cannot give you their names and positions, as they agreed to testify only on the basis of confidentiality ”(c). After that, any interest is lost to his document by any legal professional, since everything further is simply frank fiction. Because the argument “I know everything, but I will not tell anyone for objective reasons, but you just have to believe me” cannot be considered in the legal field at all. Do not take the same as "evidence", sorry, stories about the “FSB officer disguised as a plumber” who replaced the athletes with samples “through a hole in the wall” and a drawing of the building indicating where this “hole” was once located.
In the capital of Turkey, an explosion thundered. Lavrov told Kerry everything he thinks about incitement. USADAMOK urged to freeze all preparations for winter international competitions in Russia. The IOC supports the proposal to cancel the presumption of innocence of Russian athletes.
With such, excuse, "evidence" any policeman in any deaf Canadian village will send the prosecutor so far and in a direction where no attorney license will help him at all. And he will long and fervently laugh after him.
However, neither WADA nor McLaren (by the way, a wonderful “independent lawyer” who works and is remunerated under a contract of at least an “interested” organization) do not hide the fact that they are not really interested in athletes. Moreover, WADA in the official message of the IOC directly says that it will not object to the participation of the latter in competitions under the “neutral flag”. They directly directly blame the state of the Russian Federation and its “rotten corrupt regime”, that it goes so far beyond the authority of any sports organization that it’s even somehow rather embarrassing to talk about it.
And this is the only reason why this literacy film cannot be considered as a sporting one in any way: it is an exclusively political declaration accompanying a legally absurd, but quite dashing, detective novel.
And here we turn, perhaps, to the most important thing.
During the “years of no-time” of our modern history, we have divided such a stack of powers with everybody, including the “sports PACE”, that we simply wonder how some other “Canadian lawyer” has not demanded everything from us. Starting from the nuclear weapons and ending with the children's collection of stamps, which for some reason, he understood, attracted him. And regardless of any “decisions of the IOC”, these relations with all - we emphasize, with all! - “International Eligible Centers” should be subjected to the most severe audit and audit. At least, simply because one should just remember that the structure of WADA, namely the USADA, is decisively sent by the largest American professional leagues, including the respected NHL, to the international arena. And not at all because hockey players accept or do not accept doping, but because the League bosses do not really understand why such strange people, who represent an absolutely opaque bureaucratic structure, should “steer” here.
And this, by the way, concerns not only “sports organizations”.
In the same “human rights sphere” of such incomprehensible to anyone else, other than their real owners, it is generally impossible to count offices as offices.
And all these desks would like to bear a piece of the burden of world power - from PACE itself to the last Greenpeace.
The trick is not to give it to them.
