    The athlete’s interests in this matter were diligently advocated by proficient attorneys specializing in sports disputes, particularly in the realm of anti-doping cases. We unequivocally assert that every available argument and perspective was thoroughly presented to the CAS arbitrators to the utmost extent possible.

    Regrettably, the CAS decision is adverse. Nevertheless, the objectivity and impartiality of this international body have long been questionable, as evidenced by cases where the ROC itself is a party, including our suspension following the decision of the IOC Executive Committee.

    For the past two years, there has been a conspicuous absence of substantive, factually-supported, and non-derisive responses to the lingering question that initially sparked significant skepticism: Why was Valiyeva’s doping sample, collected in December 2021, retained for a month and a half in the Swedish laboratory, in direct contravention of all established timelines?

    Certainly, one could entertain the notion of coincidence, that the public disclosure of the sample result occurred immediately after the conclusion of Russia’s triumphant team figure skating tournament. Purely coincidentally, the ISU will make its decision on the Olympic medal count on February 7, marking the 10th anniversary of the Sochi Games. In reality, a war has been declared on Russian sport, and as evident, all means are deemed fair in this conflict.

    Regarding the gold medals secured by our figure skaters, the Russian Olympic Committee has consistently underscored that, in accordance with the prevailing regulations, the results of the team competition at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games remain independent of the individual case of Kamila Valieva. As such, the accolades earned by our national team in Beijing are not legally subject to review.

    CAS did not address the matter of a team result in this proceeding. This is the prerogative of the ISU and the IOC. The ROC will vigilantly monitor the subsequent actions and decisions of international sports organizations and, if deemed necessary, will take appropriate measures to legally safeguard Russian interests.
