Russia to be reinstated after criteria met in full: IPC chief Philip Carven

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is ready to reinstate Russias suspended membership as soon as possible if the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) implements in full the required criteria set for this purpose, IPC President Philip Craven has said.

“The aim of the reinstatement criteria and the IPC task force is to assist the RPC as much as we can in bringing about the significant practical and cultural changes that are required in order for it to fulfil its IPC membership obligations in full,” he said.

“Although there is no timeline for the RPC to implement the changes required, we want to work closely with them in order to bring about the necessary changes sooner, rather than later,” Craven said as saying on Thursday, reports Tass.

“With the RPC’s full cooperation and transparency, we will immediately lift its suspension once we are confident that all reinstatement criteria and verification criteria have been, and will continue to be, met in full,” the IPC president added.
