    The IPC on Monday informed the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) of the reinstatement criteria, according to a statement on the IPC website.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) on Monday informed the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) of the reinstatement criteria it must meet in order to have its IPC membership suspension lifted, according to a statement on the IPC website.

    "In order to assist the RPC in bringing about the significant changes needed, the IPC (in coordination with WADA and others) has now produced these reinstatement criteria, identifying the core, high-level requirements that the RPC must meet in order to be reinstated as a member of the IPC," the statement says.

    One of the key IPC demands toward Russia is that "the RPC will not appoint any Russian government official to its governing board, executive committee, or in any other role."

    On August 7, the IPC suspended the RPC membership due to its inability to fulfill its IPC membership responsibilities and obligations, in particular its obligation to comply with the IPC Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Code.
