Russia on Thursday denounced a proposed four-year doping ban as a politically motivated and unfair attempt to prevent its athletes from competing. 

"This is about the politicisation of this issue in order to squeeze Russia out. There is a term for such a thing: unfair competition," foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a briefing in Moscow.
