Three senior IAAF officials have been banned for life for blackmailing athletes and covering up positive drugs tests.
Papa Massata Diack, the son of the then IAAF president Lamine Diack, Valentin Balakhnichev, former Russian athletic federation (ARAF) president and IAAF treasurer Alexei Melnikov, a senior ARAF coach, have all been handed lifetime bans.
Gabriel Dolle, who was the IAAF's anti-doping director, has been given a five-year ban for his part in the doping scandal which has rocked world athletics.
European Athletics president Svein Arne Hansen does not expect Russia to return to international competition in time to take part in next year's Rio Olympics.
Russia's athletics federation has been banned by the IAAF following allegations of widespread doping, and must meet a series of conditions before being readmitted.
However, Hansen does not believe there is enough time for Russia to complete the process before the Olympic Games begin in August.
"For the moment they have to fulfil the conditions, but I cannot really see them competing in Rio," Hansen said in Athletics Weekly magazine.
"They must have a cultural change. They must get rid of all those people from before.
"We know some good people in Russian athletics and I'm sure they will be elected. We hope that some new people will come in who really understand that this must be changed."
An IAAF inspection team is due to visit Russia in January, and could then report back to the IAAF Council at its next meeting on March 27.
Usain Bolt is to warm up for the Rio Olympics by competing at the London Anniversary Games in 2016.
The double Olympic champion at 100m, 200m and 4x100m, Bolt will return to the track where he won those titles at London 2012.
Bolt will return to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, London, to take part in the July 22-23 event which is part of the IAAF Diamond League series. Bolt said: "I am pleased to announce my return to the Olympic stadium in London for the 2016 Anniversary Games.
"I know the athletics fans in London are very knowledgeable and passionate about track and field and will come out in force and create a great atmosphere like they always do."
Niels de Vos, Chief Executive of British Athletics, said: "Usain Bolt is a global sporting icon. This will be one of the last opportunities for families to attend the Anniversary Games and see him compete.
"The London Anniversary Games is one of the very best sporting events in Britain and will be even more special this year as it is staged so close to the Olympic Games."

Lord Seb Coe admits these are "dark days" for athletics but has stressed his determination to lead the sport down the "long road to redemption".
It emerged on Friday that the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) ethics commission had brought disciplinary charges against four men, including the son of former president Lamine Diack and the former head of its anti-doping department, amid the corruption crisis engulfing the sport.
French police had already revealed Diack, who was succeeded as head of the IAAF by Coe in August, was being investigated over an alleged payment of more than €1million to cover up doping offences by Russian athletes.
Asked on Sunday for his reaction to those developments, Coe told BBC Radio Five Live: "Clear shock, a great deal of anger and a lot of sadness.
"These are dark days for our sport but I'm more determined than ever to rebuild the trust in our sport. It is not going to be a short journey… I am determined to rebuild and repair the sport with my colleagues.
"But this is a long road to redemption."
