Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) President Vladimir Lukin has admitted that some of the criteria the body must fulfil to ensure the reinstatement of its International Paralympic Committee (IPC) membership remains in the "solution phase".
Following an update by the IPC Taskforce on the RPC’s progress in meeting the criteria, the IPC Governing Board has met here today and yesterday to discuss the body’s suspension.
An announcement on whether the RPC will be reinstated is expected to be made on Wednesday (September 6).
Lukin claims that the majority of the criteria has been met, but said that certain issues are out of the RPC's hands.
"The working group agreed that most of the items on the road-map plan had been complied with," he told Russian news agency TASS.
"Some items are still in the solution phase.
"Several items, far broader ones, have not been acted on yet, because that depends not on the RPC alone."
Doubts remain over the participation of Russia at next year's Winter Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang.
The IPC announced in August last year that Russia would be banned from Rio 2016 following the release of Richard McLaren's report commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
The Canadian lawyer uncovered the presence of a state-sponsored doping scheme within the Russian system.
He also revealed what he described, as the "disappearing positive methodology" - where positive samples were switched for clean ones.
The 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi were particularly believed to have been compromised by the switching of samples.
IPC President Sir Philip Craven had described the anti-doping system in Russia as "broken, corrupted and entirely compromised" when confirming the suspension of the RPC.
He had also accused the Russian Government of "catastrophically failing" its Para-athletes, claiming the "medals over morals attitude disgusts me".
Sir Philip warned in May that it would be "very unlikely" for Russia to compete at Pyeongchang 2018 should the suspension not be lifted.
The IPC Taskforce, chaired by British Rowing's chief executive Andy Parkinson, commended the RPC’s enthusiasm and commitment to achieving reinstatement in May.
Several key criteria were deemed to have not been met, however.
Last month, 14 countries wrote a letter expressing their support for Russia.
The letter was sent to the IPC following a roundtable meeting organised by the RPC.
The National Paralympic Committees represented at the meeting were those of Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Serbia, South Korea, Tajikistan and Vietnam.
Also present were representatives from the International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation.
As part of a range of initiatives to try and meet the reinstatement criteria for having its IPC suspension lifted, the RPC has launched a hotline for reporting any alleged anti-doping violations.
The national body has also developed and agreed with the IPC on the creation of an RPC anti-doping educational programme and RPC regulations on ethics, conflict of interests and fight against corruption.
The anti-doping educational programme was developed by the RPC in co-operation with the IPC Taskforce, Russian Anti-Doping Agency and WADA independent experts.
