With Russia topping all countries in total doping sanctions in deaf sports and with the IOC and IPC both having sanctioned Russia in various ways for its state run doping program, the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf remains silent about Russia. They have not announced any sanctions, any investigations into Russian doping as it relates to their deaf sports program nor any investigation into the Russian hosted 2015 Winter Deaflympics doping control program.
Russian deaf sportspeople who have been sanctioned for doping offenses since 2013 include Daniel Ivanov, Beslan Takushinov, Kirill Filippov, Anatoliy Ivanov, Ruslan Askerov, Eduard Mouraov and Evgeny Elkin. None were implicated after this date, despite Russia having both a history of Deaflympic doping. Sports they were involved with included Deaf Athletics, Deaf Judo and Deaf Wrestling. With WADA having found problems with doping issues at both the 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, the 2015 Winter Deaflympics did not report a single failed audiogram, single faked audiogram nor a single positive doping test. All available online documentation from the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf suggests through their words or lack of them that they believe Russia is completely clean in regards to doping and audiograms, and the doping issue is not worth investigating.
The International Committee of Sports for the Deaf often does not run their own doping control program. For most of its major international events, they have outsourced doping management to event organizers. Their last public message on their website about doping was in March of this year when two members attended a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) symposium.
