RIO DE JANEIRO, August 7. /TASS/. Russia’s Paralympic Committee (RPC) has a good margin of time to challenge the suspension of the Russian Para team from the Paralympic Games in Rio with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne, Artyom Patsev, an acclaimed sports attorney, told TASS on Sunday.

The IPC ruled on Sunday to suspend RPC’s (Russian Paralympic Committee) membership and bar the Russian team from the Paralympic Games in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro. Russian Minister of Sport Vitaly Mutko told TASS Russia will challenge this decision with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

"It looks difficult to speak about prospects of this suit now as the practice is ambiguous. Not all of the recent cases have been interpreted in favor of our sports organizations," Patsev said. "It is difficult to say what a CAS ruling on our Paralympians could be and what kind of argument the IPC could use to justify the suspension of the Russian team. First, I will have to scrutinize the text of the official ruling. However our Paralympians have a good margin of time to try to challenge this decision with the CAS."

The Paralympic Games are scheduled to be held in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro from September 7 through September 18.
