Russian sports information agency All Sports, citing information provided by the Moscow Area Ministry of Public Health, is reporting that an analysis of urine taken from Alexei Cherepanov has come back negative for any traces of performance enhancing drugs or metabolites. Testing was performed by the Russian anti-doping laboratory, which holds “the highest category of accreditation by the World Anti-Doping Agency and International Olympic Committee.” Their comprehensive analysis revealed the presence of only an over-the-counter drug called Amexin (internationally known as Tilorone), an immune-enhancing, anti-viral medication used “for preventive maintenance or elimination of inflammation of the mucous membrane.”

Avangard Omsk general manager Anatoli Bardin was not surprised by the news, telling All Sports “I was simply confident that Lesha could not have taken any prohibited drugs. He was a good, honest guy — I had no doubts that he was clean. Thank God that it has now been confirmed by scientific methods. Thanks to everyone who did [the testing] — they’ve dispelled all doubts and put an end to all behind-the-scenes conversations.”
