Auch hübsch, der sportliche Neujahrsgruß von Dmitri Medwedjew auf seinem Kreml-Videoblog. Sotschi 2014? Alles wird gut. Aber schwer. Medwedjew war ja in den Ferien gerade wieder Ski fahren mit Wladimir Putin und Olympiaminister Dmitri Kosak in Krasnaja Poljana.
Die Sotschi-Passage verschriftet:
As you know, in 2014 the Winter Olympics will take place in our country. Now preparations have swung into full gear, as they say. We are constructing new facilities, creating new sports fields and sports venues. And we are doing all this despite the recent financial situation in the world and in our country, a situation which has, of course, deteriorated quite seriously because of the global financial crisis. But I think that is an area where we have no right to pinch pennies. Ultimately, people’s well-being – what we refer to as the nation’s health – depends on this.
