Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman rejects claims that a former senior sports official participated in a state doping programme during the Olympics as a "defector's slander."
The ex-official's accusations are "not based on any reliable information," spokesman Dmitry Peskov says in comments carried by state news agency TASS.
In an interview with The New York Times published Thursday, Grigory Rodchenkov, a former director of a laboratory that tested Russian athletes for performance-enhancing drugs, said he helped provide such drugs to athletes and switch out drug-tainted testing samples with clean ones.
The interview said Rodchenkov had fled Russia for the US city of Los Angeles.
