Russia appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport Sunday against the decision of the International Paralympic Committee, or  IPC.

The appeal came after IPC announced a complete ban of Russian athletes from the Rio Paralympics "with immediate effect." The ban  follows the findings of the independent McLaren Investigation Report last month accusing Russia of carrying out a state-sponsored  doping programme.

Russian Paralympic Committee has criticized the ban as absurd and inhumane. It added that there is no proof showing any Russian  manipulation of the doping control process.
