MOSCOW, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- The Russian Ministry of Sport on Friday denied the existence of a government-sponsored doping system in response to the "institutionalized doping conspiracy" allegation from an investigation report released by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

Canadian sports law expert Richard McLaren on Friday published the second part of an investigation report on Russian doping, noting that an institutional conspiracy existed across summer and winter sports athletes who participated with Russian government officials.

According the report, over 1,000 Russian athletes competing in summer, winter and Paralympic sport, can be identified as being involved in or benefiting from manipulations to conceal positive doping tests.

The Russian Ministry of Sport said in a statement that there is no state-run doping programs existing in Russia, and Russia is ready to cooperate and collaborate with international organizations to improve its anti-doping programs.

The first part of the investigation report was published in July, in which Russia was accused of running a state-wide doping program and a number of athletes routinely used drugs to enhance performance at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

WADA said in a statement that summaries of the report will be provided to the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee and other relevant organizations.
