Following the WADA ExCO meeting , the IPC has published its Statement. It saya that the IPC supports WADA decision but it can be appealed by the Russian side in CAS within 21 days.
There are no allegations of breaking anti-doping principles by the RPC neither in the WADA decision, nor in the IPC statement. Nevertheless, the RPC might be a subject to sanctions, which will significantly complicate its full-fledged fulfillment of its duties in preparing the participation Russian athletes in the upcoming Paralympic Games.
Differences in approaches between WADA and Russian sports authorities regarding doping data are in no way the responsibility of the RPC and can be settled in a judicial proceeding.
For its part, the RPC will continue to actively work on the implementation of its main task - the preparation of Russian athletes for the Paralympic Games 2020 and 2022.
