Session of the Executive Committee of the International Paralympic Committee
On August 3, 2016 a session of the Executive Committee of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) took place, in which the issues of suspending membership of the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) and the possibility of participation of Russian athletes in the XV Paralympic Games in Rio-de-Janeiro in September 2016, were discussed.
YUST Law Firm is protecting the interests of the Russian Paralympic Committee. The RPC is represented by partners Anna Kotova-Smolenskaya and Patrick Pohlit, lawyer in the field of German law, as well as head of employment and sports law practice Alexander Ksenofontov. The participation of Patrick Pohlit is especially important, as the IPC is established and operates based on German law.
The members of the Executive Committee of the IPC will announce their decision on August 6-7, 2016.
