The International Olympic Committee's executive board will announce december 5 whether Russian athletes will be allowed to participate in the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, the IOC press service announced Friday. He said last month that the International Olympic Committee could try to force Russian athletes to compete in Pyeongchang under a neutral flag, which he called "humiliating". The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)'s decision not to reinstate Russian anti-doping agency RUSADA was expected and had been nearly announced beforehand, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko told TASS.

Countries and sports federations must be compliant with the WADA Code to be eligible for the Olympics with the International Olympic Committee making the ultimate decision on participation. That option apparently is on the table again, though Russian sports leaders have said they would boycott the Winter Games if their athletes aren't allowed to compete under the Russian flag.

Russian Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov also said "there is such an impression that the decision had been taken beforehand".
