President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Thomas Bach announced new sanctions against Russia in his New Year message on Friday, December 30. It was reported by Deutsche welle.

Bach also spoke about the measures to be adopted as a result of McLaren's report on doping in Russia. He also called the report itself shocking.

The response of IOC on the doping report will be prepared by two special commissions, which will give the right to speak for all parties. "After that, the IOC will take appropriate action and impose sanctions," Bach said.

Bach also said that the work of Richard McLaren will continue and will be extended, because at first he had no authority to check all the samples of Russian athletes. Now all the 254 samples of Russian athletes, taken at the Olympic Games in Sochi 2014, will be rechecked as well as all samples of Russian athletes who took part in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

According to the second part of McLaren's report on doping in Russia, presented on December 9, over a thousand Russian sportsmen and women in 30 sports were involved in the manipulation with the positive doping test.

Earlier, the Russian athletes were not allowed to the Olympics-2016, and Russia was not represented at the Paralympics.
