You need to be more specific and accurate about what Paula wanted.
My recollection is that RUSADA was banned, with evidence, while given a roadmap to compliance, and ARAF was banned, with evidence, also given a roadmap to compliance.
WADA recently lifted the ban on RUSADA, accepting shortcuts to the roadmap.
The IAAF did not lift the ban on ARAF.
Generally, Russian athletes were not banned, and were given a roadmap to compete as neutral athletes. Many Russian athletes are competing under a white flag.
In principle, it is wrong to ban clean athletes, even Russian ones.
The downside of blanket federation and anti-doping agency bans is that any clean athletes become collateral damage.
The cases of Russia and NOP differ fundamentally in the facts, leading to different opinions:
In the case of Russia, there is no doubt that many athletes received doping cocktails, given the many drug busts and admissions from whistle-blowers like Stepanov, Shobukhova, and Rodchenkov.
In the case of NOP, we are way beyond "they did not fail drug testing" -- they also survived an USADA investigation and rigorous prosecution, resulting in "no evidence in all of that report".

I agree , Paula Radcliffe was so wrong wanting to Ban All Russian athletes at the last Olympics . I saw no evidence , failed drug tests on 99% on the athletes who were Banned. She said all the athletes from Russia needed to be banned because you can't trust the dirty program. Now she says NOP athletes should not be banned because of the NOP dirty program, because they did did not fail drug testing, and you can trust the NOP athletes of this NOP dirty program.
