Evidence suggests that Russian Federation ran an orchestrated doping program at the 2014 Sochi Games.

Russian athletes, however, would be able to take part in the Games, the IOC said, as independent competitors "under the Olympic flag".

The punishment also prevents Russian officials from participating in official Olympic events, including Minister of Sport Vitaly Mutko and Deputy Minister of Sport Yuri Nagornykh, who are permanently banned from all future events.

In 2016, a WADA report found that more than 1,000 Russian competitors in more than 30 sports had been involved in a conspiracy to hide positive drug tests over a five-year period.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously said it would be humiliating for his country to compete without national symbols.

The IOC executive board made a decision to suspend the ROC with immediate effect.

Those athletes who do go to the Games, which start on February 9, will participate under the name "Olympic Athlete from Russian Federation".

In a statement released after it met in Lausanne, Switzerland, the committee said it had acted upon the recommendations of an IOC commission headed by the former Swiss President Samuel Schmid to investigate Russian doping.

Not to accredit any official from the Russian Ministry of Sport for the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.

Rodchenkov's testimony, in concert with evidence unearthed and backed by forensic analysis in a World Anti-Doping Agency investigation, refute efforts by Russian government officials to distance themselves and portray Rodchenkov as a rogue actor, ESPN reported.

International Olympic Committee comes down hard on Russian cheats, stripping Alexander Legkov of his Sochi 50-kilometre cross country gold medal and banning him for life.

Whistleblower, Grigory Rodchenkov, was the former head of a Moscow drug-testing lab.

The executive board reached its decision Tuesday after a scheduled 4 1/2-hour debate when it heard from a Russian delegation that included world figure skating champion Evgenia Medvedeva.

At the coming games, Bach said Tuesday, a special medal ceremony will reassign medals to retroactive winners from Sochi.

But athletes' blood and urine samples have been subjected to more analysis since the Sochi games, and in recent weeks, the International Olympic Committee has been slicing into Russia's medal count, disqualifying athletes from the Russian biathlon, bobsleigh, and cross-country skiing teams who were found to have broken anti-doping Rules.

It looks like Russia's past issues with doping athletes has royally bit them in the ass.
