"In view of recent publications in the press about my case, I have to declare that the situation is as follows:
Anti-Doping Commission of the Russian Cycling Federation rules that:
Mr. Alexander Kolobnev has committed a violation of the UCI Anti-Doping Rules (Article 21.1 - The presence of a Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or Markers in a Rider's bodily Specimen).
2. Mr Alexander Kolobnev is sanctioned with a reprimand and no period of ineligibility is imposed.
3. The results of Mr. Alexander Kolobnev obtained at the Tour-de-France stage of 6 July 2011 shall be disqualified.
4. Mr. Alexander Kolobnev is additionally sanctioned with a fine in amount of 1 500.
In light of this situation and waiting for what the UCI will determine about my case, it´s still being early to make any judgments. I hope it can be resolved with the earliest convenience and in the best way possible."
