Higher, larger, costlier: Sochi and the 2014 winter Olympics


Müller, Martin (2014). Higher, larger, costlier: Sochi and the 2014 winter Olympics. Russian Analytical Digest, (143):2-4.

Abstract

With its subtropical climate and beaches, Sochi is known as the summer capital of Russia. For its conversion into a global winter sports resort, the Russian government has set in motion a gigantic programme of investment. With dire consequences: the gigantomaniac project has resulted in a massive waste of money, enormous environmental damage and infrastructure grossly out of proportion to the everyday needs of the local population.
