On the YouTube channel "Empathy of Manuchi", two-time Olympic champion, current state adviser of the Russian Federation, grade 3 Svetlana Khorkina commented on the situation with doping scandals around Russia.
“If you allow the sick - or not the sick, we do not know if they are sick, or they have invented their own disease, but we have different opinions - to drink doping and participate on an equal basis with those who do not drink - this is already an advantage for person with help, with this document.
Those who are sick and use drugs that are on the unauthorized list, but they have a certificate, they can act on a par with those who do not use anything at all.
And this is already an advantage, this is inequality.
Then you separately make competitions for these guys. After all, of course, they want to perform, they are strong, they are good, but now, they are a little sick and they need to drink this...
...I have clearly defined for myself: I hate traitors. That's all.
(The situation with Rodchenkov) In general, everything is a betrayal.
I guess, I think a lot is made up. The same, somehow, this... I traveled around our country, interviewed... He is either German, or who he was, this interviewer, he released some films... I don’t know his last name, I don’t remember, but it doesn’t matter.
Well, that is, something somewhere (in this story) is true, something is added somewhere. Something, somewhere, somehow...
But in principle, for me, Rodchenkov is a traitor.
For me, this man is just a traitor, why did he not stay in the country? Why did he leave? I do not know.
I really hope that soon everything will be returned (the flag and anthem of the Russian Olympic team - approx. "NO"), we must do everything possible.
Have you (about Rodchenkov, - editor's note) seen these documents? Were you informed about this (about the substitution of doping tests - editor's note) ? They didn’t tell me and didn’t tell me anything.
Well, why did you run away? What's wrong here? And why are you hiding?"
