UPROAR OVER BILLBOARDS: The London TELEGRAPH reports billboards in Russia promoting the '14 Sochi Games "have been branded 'fascist' and 'neo-Hitlerite' because of their design." The campaign "features blonde, blue-eyed snowboarders and iceskaters posing proudly next to a new housing development that will become the Olympic media village during the Games." The images "have reminded some Russians of fascist propaganda and have even been likened by some critics to 'something from a Leni Riefenstahl film'" (TELEGRAPH.co.uk, 5/17).
