Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russian president Vladimir Putin said that Sharapova’s case and other doping cases shouldn’t be “projected onto all of Russian sport” and do not “cast a shadow on Russian sport, on the amazing achievements of our athletes.”

He urged the sporting world to regard the cases as “individual athletes, individual situations.”
