Sochi 2014: The Great Olympic Greenwash


Olympics is a time of excitement and admiring the strength of human body and spirit. Unfortunately, Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics caused catastrophic level of environmental damage in the region, contributed to mass human rights violations, led to massive budgetary thefts, and terrifying degradation of environmental and human rights legislation in the country. This is not the type of Olympic heritage Russians were expecting. Human beings do not deserve it.

    I just made a link to your interview SRF Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen in my article “Olympia 2014: Putins Spiele” There I refered to the documentary “Putins Spiele from Alexander Gentelev”. It’s incredible! Everyone is turning a blind eye to what is happening in Sotchi, happening to the environnement, happening to the people.
    kind regards from Switzerland
