Russian President Calls On Evaluation Of Sochi 2014 Sites Following Earthquake
Published December 28, 2012
LONG ROAD AHEAD: Putin's spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said, "The president ordered the Emergencies Ministry to pay close attention to the shocks in Sochi and other cities. He asked that special attention is paid to construction sites to make sure they suffer no damage." The AFP noted Olympic developers in Sochi "are managing two giant construction sites," one in the mountains and the other by the Black Sea, that are connected by an unfinished road. Although some sports events have already been hosted by the city, "much of the supporting infrastructure is still unfinished, while residents complain of constant power and water outages" (AFP, 12/27).
