A Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) Working Group will oversee all track and field competitions until the Russian Athletics Federation (RusAF) is reinstated by the Sports Ministry, ROC President Stanislav Pozdnyakov has confirmed.
Pozdnyakov announced that events including the Russian Indoor Championships in Moscow "will be held under the supervision" of the panel.
According to Russia's official state news agency TASS, the ROC President claimed there will be "no infringements on athletes' interests" from the Working Group, which he chairs.
The Group was established to direct the embattled governing body after RusAF was suspended for a month by the Russian Sports Ministry following anti-doping charges from the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU).
It will also be responsible for organising the RusAF Extraordinary Conference on February 28, where Dmitry Shlyakhtin's replacement as President is due to be elected.
Shlyakhtin resigned after he was among the seven RusAF officials charged with obstructing an anti-doping investigation into world indoor high jump champion Danil Lysenko by forging documents to explain missed tests by the AIU.
The AIU, which handles anti-doping matters for World Athletics, recommended last month that Russia’s track and field body - whose original ban in 2015 has since been extended on 13 occasions - be expelled from the global governing body.
It came after the AIU accused RusAF of failing to accept responsibility for several "serious anti-doping breaches", regretting that it had chosen not to admit to the charges despite "clear and compelling evidence" and calling for further change.
Pozdnyakov also confirmed the Modern Pentathlon Federation of Russia would cover the costs of the track and field events during RusAF's period of suspension.
"It is important for the season to roll on and for the Russian Championship to take place," he added.
"Therefore, I highly evaluate the work of our group."
RusAF Athletes' Commission chairman Rodion Gataullin, the 1988 Olympic pole vault silver medallist and former European champion, was appointed to the Working Group last month.
The panel also includes Russian Anti-Doping Agency director general Yury Ganus, among others.
