The entire Russian National team will be suspended from participation in the Paralympic Games 2016, - told the head of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Philip Craven, according to "RIA Novosti".

Craven said that there is evidence that during the Paralympic Games in Sochi was carried a substitution of samples. According to him, 21 sample of seven Russian athletes were re-tested.

After the report, prepared by an independent committee of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), headed by Richard McLaren, was conducted a new investigation. As a result, the laboratory found "that only 19 samples can be normally verified, on 18 samples covers scratches were found, which proves that they were opened and used again," Craven said.
