Radulov signed in Russia mere days before the international agreement was made and the signing was only announced afterwards. I think that suggests the agreement was already worked out before the Radulov affair itself and his case was not the precedent for the agreement.
I seem to remember it differently. The agreement was done soon after, almost winging it as if Radulov kicked something lose. It was not mere days, it was a few (very few) weeks.
