Vladimir Putin Secures Sochi Olympics 2014

Vladimir Putin Secures Sochi Olympics 2014

President Vladimir Putin was present at the occasion to greet the Olympic Committee officials. He didn’t let the moment go to waste. The black belt in judo petted two Persian leopards. They were endangered species and he was showing off his nation’s concern for wildlife. 

''We've decided to restore the population of the Persian leopard because of the Olympic Games,'' Vladimir Putin said. ''Let's say that because of the Olympic Games, we have restored parts of the destroyed nature.''

Then he went ahead and extolled the Russian people and Russia for showing the spirit of magnanimity that characterized their passion for hosting the Olympics. The President was wary of foreign leaders like Obama who has almost boycotted the Sochi Olympics due to Russia’s dismal gay rights and human rights record. 

"We had such a high threat scenario in the Winter Games 12 years ago in Salt Lake City just after 9/11," International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said Monday.

But the Sochi Olympics security arrangements this time around are very tight. Several dangers are being faced by the administrators. Black widows, female suicide bombers, are the number one concern for now. Their husbands were terrorists that have been killed. So they are out for revenge. 

All Vladimir Putin can do is hold his breath and count the numbers till the Winter Olympics 2014 event is over. The Islamic threat to the Russian Federation remains especially from its southern regions. There have been sporadic incidents and at the Olympics the police forces will have to be extra-vigilant. No one wants any trouble. That is why security is being beefed up all along the area that comes within the ambit of the Sochi Olympics site.
