Here are key dates in the scandal. President Vladimir Putin poses for photographs with numerous Russian winners. A review of the results from Russian athletes in the past few months has led to the disqualification of more than two dozen Russians from Sochi. As sports minister in 2014, he was deeply implicated in the Sochi doping plot by two International Olympic Committee commissions and a World Anti-Doping Agency investigation.
"Of course we want our athletes there, and we want the Russian flag and anthem", he said.
The decision by the IOC's executive board follows last year's McLaren Report from the World Anti-Doping Agency, which confirmed that Russia's Olympics program had engaged in an "institutional conspiracy" to beat the system that included using a "mouse hole" to swap out athletes' drug-tainted samples for clean ones. The IAAF suspends the Russian athletics team.
WADA's second report into doping and corruption is published.
The commission said that the system progressed along with anti-doping technologies. "That is why the then-sports minister has responsibility for the failure of this system".
Another ARD programme claims that Russian authorities have been covering up for coaches disgraced by the doping programme, directly pinpointing Mutko for his alleged involvement in the cover-up.

Tuesday's punishment will invite criticism from some anti-doping organizations that had called for a blanket ban of all Russian athletes.
Figure skating coach Tatiana Tarasova looks on while meeting with the media on December 5, 2017, in Moscow, after the International Olympic Committee announced the decision to ban Russian Federation from 2018 Winter Olympics.
At Rio, around 270 Russians are cleared to compete, with 111 excluded.
Twenty-eight Russians competing in Sochi are implicated in cheating by McLaren.
The IOC announced the decision after examining evidence of state-sponsored doping over several years that reached a high-point at the Winter Olympics hosted in Sochi, Russia, in 2014.
Russian lawmakers and other officials quickly rejected the International Olympic Committee decision, saying it was influenced by politics. So far the figure stands at 25 athletes, with 11 medals stripped.
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.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
