On 27 October 2016, the IOC stated that the fact that Kudukhov had died was not known at the time the decision to include his samples in the re-analysis process was made. The IOC promptly dropped all disciplinary proceedings, stating that such proceedings cannot be conducted against a deceased person. As a result, Olympic results that would have been reviewed will remain uncorrected as the proceedings cannot move forward.

In any event, Yogeshwar Dutt, the bronze medal winner, had earlier refused to accept the silver medal and wished for Kudukhov's family to retain it.
