International Paralympic Committee extended the sanctions against Paralympic Committee of Russia as the BBC Russian reports.

Consequently, Russian Paralympians will not be able to take part in the nearest championships of Europe and world that were organized under the aegis of IPC and winter Paralympic Games in 2018.

International Paralympic Committee disqualified the Russian Paralympic Committee and banned Russian sportsmen from 2016 Paralympics due to the study of the report of the independent commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) under the supervision of Richard Mclaren.

This decision of the IPC can be reconsidered in September.

According to Andy Parkinson the head of the IPC Taskforce, the dialogue with Russia was established but there are still some questions that worried the Committee. Particularly, the report of Mclaren states, there is no access for the independent specialists to the sportsmen, who train in the closed towns. 

Parkinson is responsible for judging the state of things in the Paralympic Committee of Russia.

The IPC Taskforce was established in November 2016. It consists of 5 specialists. The criteria for Russia were worked out with the help of WADA.
