As sports minister in 2014, he was deeply implicated in the Sochi doping plot by two International Olympic Committee commissions and a World Anti-Doping Agency investigation.
Russian athletes, however, would be able to take part in the Games, the IOC said, as independent competitors "under the Olympic flag".
That Oswald Commission called the Russian doping system "one of the worst ever blows against the integrity and reputation of the Olympic Games". The nation's deputy prime minister, Vitaly Mutko, was Russia's top sports official during the 2014 Sochi Games and was directly implicated by Rodchenkov.
Those probes have concluded that more than 1,000 Russian athletes across at least 30 sports, including both summer and winter events, had been involved in doping that dated from at least 2011. Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously said it would be humiliating to compete without national symbols.
The decision by the IOC's executive board follows last year's McLaren Report from the World Anti-Doping Agency, which confirmed that Russia's Olympics program had engaged in an "institutional conspiracy" to beat the system that included using a "mouse hole" to swap out athletes' drug-tainted samples for clean ones.

"They will compete with a uniform bearing this name (OAR) and under the Olympic Flag", the IOC said in its ruling. Russian Federation will also be marked in the record books as having obtained zero medals during this Games (which, duh).
The commission based its findings on an independent report by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren that was commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency and published a year ago. We salute whistleblower Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov, who risked so much to tell this story, and support all those who are willing to speak truth to power.
A partnership agreement has been signed between the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) and the Russian International Olympic University (RIOU) to "fight against doping" in sport in the country.
Russian officials reacted to the decision by attacking it as unfair. By Monday, 25 Russians had been disqualified from the Sochi Games and banned from the Olympics for life, and 11 medals were stripped.
