Dmitry Medvedev: on Vancouver problems origins

Dmitry Medvedev held a meeting in Sochi on March 26, 2010 devoted to the problems of sports development in Russia. The meeting included two vice-chairman of the Russian government Alexander Zhukov and Dmitry Kozak, presidential envoy in the Northern Caucasus Federal District, Minister of Sports Vitaly Mutko, governor of Krasnodar Region Alexander Tkachev, representatives of sports federations, etc.

The reasons of poor performance of the Russian team in Vancouver go back to long ago, the President stated. Those who are responsible for the preparation of the sportsmen could not have failed to notice problems, but did not act.

Dmitry Medvedev mentioned that 7 out of 12 Presidents of the Russian Sports Federations will be replaced. It is planned to raise salaries for coaches and spare no effort in bringing back eminent Russian coaches, who immigrated to foreign countries in the last 15 years.

Special attention will be paid to technical equipment in such sports as biathlon, bobsleigh, and toboggan.

At the end of the day the President of Russia went to Krasnaya Polyana with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to ski in the last days of the winter season.

Olympic City Duma

The City Duma of Sochi held its first meeting after new deputies were elected. Alexander Tkachev, governor of Krasnodar Region, and vice-governor Murat Akhedjak were also present since this City Duma is going to be the one responsible for the preparation of Sochi for 2014 Olympics.

The regional government has allocated about 30 billion rubles for the preparation, 35 billion rubles were borrowed additionally. Such a great responsibility calls for ultimate attention and hardest efforts from the Duma deputies.

It is expected that Sochi will greatly improve its infrastructure, conditions of the roads and hospitality facilities to bring the city on one level with the world’s best sea resorts.
