The information that emerged on the Internet that Grigalava allegedly proposed the club`s direction to conduct an independent examination in Moscow and wasn`t given an answer, is not consistent with the reality, as the permission for the medical was given, but  only after the delivery of medical tests in Makhachkala, which the footballers currently refuses to do.

Besides, the certificate of analysis has been already issued to one of the footballers, who passed the medical.
