Will Popov be silent about these cases, like always?

Probably Popov will whine about Cielo and say that there is nothing wrong happening on his country…. which is what he always do, and he did that in Barcelona

when it’s happening like this at the club level, I truly fear how bad it could possibly be at the professional level.

and not just amongst Russians.

But why sacrifice the little fish if you can keep them all big and small fish “healthy”?

Or maybe the little fish are more careless?

by going after the little fish, it gives the appearance to the general public that they are being vigilant against the cheaters and that the testing is working. meanwhile the big fish stay protected and face no scrutiny.
