Russia will not boycott next year's Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, even if their athletes are forced to compete under a neutral flag, the Kremlin claimed today.

That seems only logical. You don't want a situation where the decision is made for them to compete as neutrals and then you've got a month and a half or something to figure out what they're gonna wear.

If they go for the neutral thing,, doest it mean we will see neutral relays and neutral teams ?

Very difficult to know.

My understanding, based on Yugoslavia in 1992, is they can appear in relays and team events in individual sports (like pairs skating) but not in team sports like ice hockey and curling.

But rules can change if the IOC wants it.

For curling it might be interesting - Russian women wouldn't start, so will we take three teams from the Plzen torunament starting tomorrow or next from ranking, that will start the Plzen tourament unnecessarily?

Neutral jerseys, sort of like half the world in sports like biathlon where a ton of them have basically the same colours.
