Russian Federation enraged by 2018 Winter Olympics ban over doping

By invitation only, there will be Russians competing at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

The International Olympic Committee has banned the Russian team from games as punishment for doping violations at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

The door was left open, however, for Russians to compete as an "Olympic Athlete of Russia" as long as they satisfy strict conditions that show they have a doping-free background.

It was a nod toward the unmarked Russian soldiers who helped conquer Crimea in 2014, as the country wrapped up its own Olympic Games. Tuesday's action was based on the findings of the IOC's Schmid Commission, formed in July 2016 to examine the role of Russian officials and institutions in organized doping, ESPN reported. It blames Grigory Rodchenkov, the former director of Moscow and Sochi testing laboratories, as a rogue employee. There is also scientific evidence, witness statements and correspondence.

Trump Wants To Create A Secret "Spy Agency" To Fight Political Enemies
However, the Central Intelligence Agency said The Intercept had been fed "inaccurate information by people peddling an agenda". In addition, the White House is also considering creating a global rendition unit to capture terror suspects around the world.

IOC President Thomas Bach said: "Today we gave the Russian delegation the opportunity to express themselves". "There are positive and negative sides", he said. "We also believe that clean and ethical sport should know no borders, and that agreed-upon standards must be enforced".

Other Russians were more forthright, with Alexei Kravtsov, president of the Russian Skating Union, saying: "The decision is offensive, insulting and completely unjustified".

A hard line has been taken by the All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company, or VGTRK, which said Tuesday that if Team Russia isn't competing in South Korea, it won't broadcast the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Alexei Kurashov, president of the Russian freestyle federation, added: "The Olympic movement has discredited itself and there will be fundamental consequences to this".

Airlines Ban Smart Bags That Lack Removable Batteries
Some even a motor to propel the bags so that they can double as a scooter or just follow their owner around the airport. But they are powered by lithium ion batteries, which have been known to burst into flames on flights.

The IOC's decision comes 18 months after it decided not to impose an outright ban on Russian athletes ahead of Rio and told global sports federations to decide individually on the participation of Russians at the Olympics in Brazil.

Elite figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva, one of Russia's most famous athletes and the reigning world champion, vented the frustrations of many would-be Olympians who say they thought they were doing enough by being "clean". Press secretary Dmitry Peskov said, "The situation is serious, and it requires thorough analysis".

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

The long-awaited International Olympic Committee decision punishing Russia for a state-sponsored doping campaign during the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, came a little more than two months before the quadrennial skiing, skating and sledding contests unfold at venues in the mountains and along the coast of South Korea. However, it said of Yuri Nagornykh, the deputy sports minister at the time of the Sochi Games, "it is impossible to conclude that he was not aware" of doping cover-ups. "I'm sorry for the people who have suffered because of his incompetence". The Olympic anthem will be played in any ceremony during which a Russian athlete wins a gold medal.
