The all-Russian athletics Federation (vfla) has no illusions that the issue of restoration of membership in the International Association of athletics federations (IAAF) will be resolved quickly, said the Agency «R-Sport» Executive Director of wfla Alexander Parkin.

The working group of the IAAF on Monday recommended that the Congress organizations to extend the suspension of the all-Russian athletics Federation (vfla) until all conditions for reinstatement of wfla will not be fulfilled. The IAAF Congress will be held on 2 and 3 August in London.

«Wfla no illusions that everything will be solved, and we will restore that works really a lot. The crisis that took place, it is not on the surface, it is within us, it’s in sportsmen, running from the doping officers, not handing over the medals inside trainers which continues to work despite the suspension. All this in mind, it will take time to change that. Not everything is so easy,» said Parkin by phone.

According to Parkin, wfla «clear the current situation.» «Until RUSADA until you complete the investigation, we will remain unfulfilled criteria, and accordingly, wfla will not be restored. But these moments are least dependent on the wfla and the IAAF, because RUSADA WADA should recover, and the investigation by law enforcement agencies of France and Russia, and we are only providing assistance,» — said the Agency interlocutor.

«However, these points are very subjective aspects, we put the defects. The main thing that we are testing, it continues. Today the doping situation in Russia is significantly reduced compared to what it was in years past. It is clear that there are issues that are not resolved, but they must be solved together with the international community, and not in correspondence with the working group. Much more efficient that bureaucratic correspondence would be if our athletes, professionals, judges would not be excluded from the international community. Now in our current report 160 points on which we are discussing with the working group and on each item we are presenting documents, arguments. You know what the big bureaucratic machine we got,» continued the functionary.

The IAAF Congress will be held on 2 and 3 August in London. «Now the President of the vfla, shlyahtin flies to London, where he will convince, he will communicate with delegates of the Congress of the IAAF. He will report on what we have done for 20 months, will report about the moments that are not included in the report. Let’s hope Congress will listen, and there would be some discussion,» Parkin concluded.
