"The Panel unanimously recommended that the IOC not extend an invitation to the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 to the 15 individuals requested by the suspended ROC [Russian Olympic Committee]", said a committee's statement on Monday.
"We would never have expected this", Bach told a press conference in Pyeongchang just five days ahead of the opening of the Winter Olympic Games.
The IOC has banned Russian Federation from the PyeongchangWinter Olympics starting later this week over "systematic manipulation" of the anti-doping system in Sochi but 169 athletes with no history of doping have been invited to compete as neutrals.
He said an International Olympic Committee panel would announce in the "next couple of days" whether 15 of the now-reinstated Russians - 13 athletes and two coaches - would be invited to take part in Pyeongchang. None of the athletes whose bans were overturned feature in the list.
Following an appeal against the life bans by 42 athletes, CAS cleared 28 citing insufficient evidence against them, and also lifted bans on 11 others, but barred them from taking part in the 2018 Olympics.
The German insisted the International Olympic Committee could not act exclusively on the damning findings of systemic doping by Russians at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics alone as any disciplinary action resulting from the McLaren Report would not have been successful.
While commenting on the issue, Russian Olympic Assembly chief Alexander Zhrkov praised CAS decision.
