The International Biathlon Union (IBU) has published a preliminary calendar for the next season. Russia has not received a single competition - the stages of the World Cup and the IBU Cup will be held in other countries.
The decision of the IOC can leave Russia without the World Cup.
The Executive Committee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) suspended the Russian national team from participation in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Russia has more and more chances to "fly" past the 2018 Olympics.
