Interesting of how many athletes has been caught on meldonium. No need to forget that after all it was invented in Soviet Union and Russians might had known about it's doping abilities all that time and just happily used it. We will see how many more cases there is going to be knowing that this drug is extremely common in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Middle Asia.

Yep, like Mutko himself said: "There is massive use of this in Russia, we'll see more cases."

I read in an article that 2,2 % of all tests where they tested for meldonium last year were positive. Pretty worrying.

Looks like meldonium is quite a popular illegal substance for the Russians, I wonder what it's counterpart is in other powerhouse countries.
