International sports arbitration dismissed the appeal filed by the Russian Paralympic Committee.

The decision was published on their official website.

As it was reported earlier, International Paralympic Committee made a ruling to ban Russian athletes participating in the Paralympics because of failed doping test.

The IPC suspended the Russian Paralympic Committee on 7 August due to its inability to fulfil its IPC membership responsibilities and obligations, in particular its obligation to comply with the IPC Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Code (to which it is also a signatory), reports the official website for the Paralympic Movement.

Federation called this decision politically motivated.
