On its part, ROC is ready to provide any assistance to the Russian Biathlon Union within our competence. We are now examining all the aspects of this case, we have prepared a number of official inquiries to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation and to the National Olympic Committee of Austria.
