(CNN) -- When asked about a New York Times article alleging that some Russian officials admitted to the "institutional doping" by athletes, Kremlin spokesman Dimitri Peskov said "we categorially deny it." "From the very start (of the doping scandal) we denied any involvement of the state, state agencies, services or bodies in the possible use of doping by athletes," Peskov told reporters Wednesday. The Kremlin now awaits the results of an investigation, he added.
