Prime minister Vladimir Putin agreed with arguments about the necessity of transferring the building of tobogganing and bobsleighing tracks, mountain Olympic village and a water intake from the territory of Grushevy ridge, which is the object of a world natural heritage, to the other place.
«In case of disbalance in nature, it can appear the situation, that we won't be able to cope with for anything in the world, the head of the government has wisely noticed, admitting the fact that the conflict with ecologists was provoked»by decisions which have not been worked out fully". According to ecologists, they have won «in many aspects, because the international organisations, first of all UNESCO, have stepped in». One more serious
Down with bureaucrats!
Dmitry Kozak repeats: «Building of Olympic objects in Sochi goes according to plan,
And the reference to tenders sounds all the time: «Come on, win! Well, we approximately imagine, how these tenders go. I think that we will win nothing there » «I will support you, said the head of the state, a little discouraged by such frankness, but if to speak about these procedures, actually, you have all the tools is in your hands Public Prosecutor's Office, judicial and antimonopoly structures. Teach them with these tools, painfully!» «Neither problems of bureaucracy, nor the crisis phenomena should cause terms failure of the beginning of bulding of objects, Vladimir Putin says categorically. if someone from investors now cannot take obligations connected with participation in Olympic building it is better to refuse them absolutely».
Representatives of Russian Organizing committee insisted and continue to insist: all objects constructed for the Games, will be in demand after the Olympic Games. Meanwhile, it became known in spring about the decision to limite to one seaport in Sochi. «We have defined ten freight platforms for warehousing and transshipment and it has given the chance to refuse building of the second seaport and to save 8,5 billion roubles», commented Dmitry Kozak. And Vladimir Putin dared to admit the fact, that five ice arenas at the Black sea coast are too much. «There is an idea: to make three of them collapsible and after the Games transfer them to other regions of the country for
development of winter kinds of sports and popularisation of Olympic movement there», the prime minister told. In 2008 the state has allocated for preparation for the Sochi Olympic Games 113 billion roubles, in 2009 was planned 118 billion roubles, but then the sum has decreased to 104 billion roubles, thus private investments have grown to 102 billion roubles. According to new information, the general cost of Olympic infrastructure makes about 200 billion roubles.
According to the schedule, building of Olympic objects in Sochi should come to the end by 2012. «The delaying of any procedures connected with preparation for the Games, is inadmissible», Vladimir Putin warned.
