Russia Barred From Winter Olympics After Heavy US Lobbying
No doubt, after humiliating and denying the Russians the pleasure of competing in winter sports the US will proclaim it is interested in good relations but that Russia is to blame.
No state-sponsored doping was revealed or proven, it all rests on the allegations of a single wacko who was caught himself, but Russia pays the price of being the geopolitical boogeyman of the West, and being profiled as a dope-happy Eastern European nation.

After over a century of international games celebrating friendly global competition, the International Olympic Committee has announced that they will be fully banning the Russian Federation from participating in the 2018 Winter Olympics, the first time a nation has ever been forbidden from sending competitors.
Officially, this is being done to punish Russia for doping among athletes. In reality, the move was heavily lobbied for by the US and a series of allies, a push that was primarily about US-Russia tensions in recent years.
The doping scandal, after all, was nothing particularly new, and accusations of doping among athletes from Eastern Europe have gone back for generations without any such bans being seriously contemplated.
The IOC says it will allow certain athletes from Russia to participate under a УneutralФ flag, but only in individual events. No Russian teams will be allowed to be fielded in any team sports.
The US, of course, praised the move, saying that excluding the Russians was a Уstrong and principled decisionФ for the IOC, and one that ensures doping will never happen again.
Russia banned from the Winter Olympics. Individual Russians who are cleared to compete will wear a ТneutralТ uniform. And the Russian flag won't fly at the games. It's possible that Moscow will now pull all its athletes & block release of Hockey players from the KHL. https://t.co/a9Jncimun4
