Why was Russia banned from the Olympics, but now allowed to return?

Are we punishing the country for cheating or not?

Now I am hearing that Russia will be allowed, but they can't use flag, country won't be mentioned, and no national athtem will be played...

BANNING MEANS NO RUSSIANS AT ALL....

    They were banned over their PED programme.  They can't compete in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in addition to the Tokyo and Beijing Olympics.  The ban was reduced from 4 to 2 years by the Court for Arbitration in Sport.
