MOSCOW, September 27. /TASS/. The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) keeps providing the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) with vague requirements on the committee’s membership reinstatement in the global body and asks the Russian side to halt all court proceedings, RPC First Vice President Pavel Rozhkov said on Tuesday.

"Today we are in the process of rebooting and we need to understand what we should be doing next since the deadline to apply for qualification tournaments ahead of the 2018 Paralympics in South Korea will soon approach," Rozhkov said.

"We need certain criteria from the IPC to start preparations, but they keep sending us vague requirements and also demand from us to stop legal proceedings," he said. "Otherwise, they threaten not to send us the required criteria."

On August 7, the IPC decided to bar the whole Russian Paralympic team from taking part in the 2016 Summer Paralympics. The ruling came on the heels of a report delivered earlier in the summer by the Independent Commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency.
