MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian foreign minister cast calls for new anti-doping sanctions on Russian sports as one more Western effort to sideline Russia, while the country’s top anti-doping official called the step “justified” on Tuesday.

A key panel at the World Anti-Doping Agency recommended on Monday that Russian athletes compete as neutrals at next year’s Olympics and other major events for the next four years.

The panel also wants Russia banned from hosting events during that time.
