Sochi 2014 Winter Games - the most expensive in history, only Adler - Krasnaya Polyana road at a cost comparable to four flights to Mars. It is estimated that the overall scale of plunders during the construction of $25-30 billion. In the company involved in the Olympic construction, the blame for the huge amounts shifted to the state, which provided an illiterate projects.
On their spending - more than $50 billion - it was more expensive than the costs of sports facilities of all the Winter Olympics combined, of which there were 21. Olympic facilities in Sochi expensive in the world 2.5 times, we must remember that this model complexes, which differ only in the number of seats.
Thus, the the overall scale of plunders is about $25-30 billion, or 50-60% of the declared value of the final Olympics. These are the normal pullback. And this is at a minimum. We do not consider that the Olympics is used slave labor of migrant workers. We do not consider that the quality of the work does not go to any comparison with the quality of construction in Vancouver, Turin and Salt Lake City.
The most expensive Olympic facility - the 48-kilometer road Adler - Krasnaya Polyana for $9 billion for comparison - the cost of the U.S. program to deliver on the Mars rovers and operation of a new generation of Curiosity - $2,5 billion.
This is the most brazen, monstrous scam of Putin's regime. Is stated its intention to establish a public committee to investigate the crimes of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, which, in particular, should compel the Court of Auditors to lift all stamps of secrecy.
