Peskov also said that Russia continued negotiations with the IOC on the issue of protection of Russian athletes' interests and their participation in the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in South Korea's PyeongChang.

The two Koreas have agreed to march together under the unification flag - a pale blue silhouette of the peninsula - at the Games' opening ceremony on Friday. CAS has told the International Olympic Committee this will not be available until the end of February, Bach said in Pyeongchang on Sunday.

Bach on Sunday criticised CAS for the delay over the delivery of the reasoned decision. The Russian athletes are trying to dispute the International Olympic Committee decision through the CAS with the hearing scheduled for Thursday.

The IOC hasn't said why any of the individual Russians weren't invited, but did say it used a newly available database detailing past doping when it decided who should be eligible.

'You can only look into an appeal seriously when you have the reasoned decision, which we do not have.

In response to the IOC's actions, 32 banned Russian national team members, including Sochi Olympic champions short track skater Viktor Ahn and biathlete Anton Shipulin, filed a lawsuit with the Ad Hoc Division of CAS to challenge their non-invitation.

"We share the distress, uncertainty and frustration expressed by many athletes on the news of this ruling and believe this decision to be a massive setback for clean sport", the committee said in a statement on Tuesday.

"CAS will continue to evolve to ensure consistency and quality of jurisprudence". Olympic Athletes from Russia (OAR) will be the third largest athlete delegation, with 169 athletes. Officials from France, Germany and Austria all expressed concerns about sending athletes as tensions spiralled a year ago, when North Korea fired a series of missile tests and exchanged threats of war with the United States. He hopes a final decision will be made "in the next couple of days".

"With regards to the reallocation of medals, we have to wait until all legal remedies are exhausted", Bach said. "Therefore, unfortunately, here in Pyeongchang this reallocation of medals can not happen yet", Bach explained.

The IOC also banned 43 Russians for life from the Olympics following a further inquiry.
