«We are charmed!»

The more enthusiastic are inspectors of the IOC about the organization of Olympic Games-2014, the more confident become the organizers. According to their statements, now, in the foreground are questions of preparation of managers for operation of constructed objects, safety of the Games, introduction of green technologies and meeting ecological standards, and also the development of sports infrastructure for a victory of the Russian athletes in house competitions.

Jacques Rogge, the president of the International Olympic committee:

— We are charmed, and we welcome the end of building of all objects for the Olympic Games-2014 in time with high quality. I communicated with sportsmen, who participated in the first test competition in Sochi this year, and they praised the organization. There are 74 test competitions left, which will allow to look in practice how the preparation for the Olympic Games is going. I plan to visit Sochi in November. I am sure, the city has changed a lot for the last year, and I will not recognize it.

Yury Reylyan, the Deputy Minister of Regional Development of the Russian Federation:

— Undoubtedly, Sochi has drawn the happy ticket. In process of the decision of ecological and municipal problems, the main heritage of the Olympic Games is the decision of an old problem of people included in a waiting list at the expense of habitation, which is now constructed for timely accomodation of the personnel. Thus, in a city there will be 600 thousand square meters of habitation of economic class.

Dmitry Chernyshenko, the president of Organizing committee «Sochi-2014»:

— We are interested in managers having experience of work on the Olympic objects and staff management by number not less than three hundred persons. In our country there are no such experts, therefore we plan to prepare personnel in RIOU. We do not hire foreigners as top-managers, we want to involve them as experts and teachers for our managers.

Evgeny Snegiryov, the Representative of Department of Ecological Support of «Olympstroy»:

— We declared the readiness to use solar modules on the Big Ice Arena, in the IOC hotel, in educationally-administrative building of RIOU and in mountain Olympic village. The list of power effective constructions will be considerably expanded.

Kristof Buve, the director of UNEP European bureau:

— We understand concern of independent ecological associations about preservation of natural ecosystems of Caucasus, share their opinion, that the Games shouldn't lead to deterioration of ecological conditions in Sochi. It is more pleasant to realize, that the building companies, engaged in the project «Sochi-2014», understand the necessity to work together.

Alexander Tkachev, the governor of Krasnodar territory:

— Realization of the Olympic project will help Krasnodar territory to increase a tourist flow to resorts of the region up to 20 million people in the next years. It is quite real number. Billions of investments are made into development of infrastructure of the coast Modern resorts and hotel complexes, roads and interchanges will be constructed there. Today people are not contented with a hut on chicken legs in a private sector.

Dmitry Kozak, the Vice-premier of the Government of Russia:

— Technical means of safety, which will be used by our special services during the Olympic Games-2014, have made impression on the representatives of the North Atlantic Alliance, participating in session of Council Russia — NATO in Sochi. The theme of safety during the Games concerns both spectators, and sportsmen. Everybody remembers the act of terrorism during the Olympic Games-1972 in Munich, when11 sportsmen of a national team of Israel died because of the members of the radical Palestinian organization «Black September'.

Vladimir Putin, the Prime Minister of Russia:

— Such competitions among children, as»The Leather ball" and «The Gold washer» were completely liquidated. Do you know, how many boys in the country participate now in these competitions? In «The Gold washer» — 300 thousand, in «The Lether ball» — 600 thousand. A few. It is necessary to revive and develop children's sports and to increase this number to one million and more. We should achieve in Russia the same as in Finland, 75% of inhabitants are going in for sports. We have to draw resources from mass sports for training of Olympic champions.

Vitaly Mutko, the Minister of Sports of Russia:

— In near prospect the largest Russian and international competitions, including Winter Olympic Games, the World football championship, the World Summer Student's Games, «Formula-1» will be held. They are good stimulus not only for sports development, but also for social and economic development, including development of entrance and internal tourism.

Oleg Mityaev, the national actor of Russia, the bard:

— It seems to me, that in course of preparation for the Olympic Games we forget about spirit — spirit to fill all constructed buildings with delight, warmth; to write something, infect an audience, which will support our children, and, eventually, to win. We can follow the example of student's team, which for some years go for the Sochi building.

Vasily Yurchenko, the Governor of the Novosibirsk region:

— We have approved the long-term target program of development of sports in the Novosibirsk region for 2010-2015. It is planned to allocate 6,7 billion roubles for the erecting of new buildings and reconstruction of sports objects, which do not satisfy today's requirements. The program will allow to strengthen the financial and technical basis of branch, as in our region 70 kinds of sports are developed. Especially, it is necessary to increase the percent of sports halls and pools.

Ivan Skobrev, the silver and bronze prize-winner of the Olympic Games in Vancouver:

— I am very glad, that I became the ambassador of «Sochi-2014» in day, when our country got the right to hold the first in its history Winter Olympic Games. 2010 and 2011 became the most successful for me in sports career, but there is no limit to perfection. I always keep in my mind the main event for any Russian athlete — the Games in Sochi. The victory in the domestic Olympic Games is hundred times more precious and it is ten times more difficult, than others.
