Scientist Critical of Olympic Construction Flees Russia

April 19th, 2010 • Related • Filed Under

The BBC is reporting that a senior scientist has fled Russia out of fears of arrest motivated by his criticism of construction for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. The scientist, Dr. Sergei Volkov, is a geologist who until now has worked as a consultant for the Olympic Games, and he has spoken out on numerous occasions with concerns that the construction is going forward without proper geological research. With both the International Olympic Committee and the Russian state corporation responsible for construction in Sochi, Olympstroy, rejecting his concerns, Volkov has now fled to Ukraine to avoid possible arrest on trumped-up criminal charges.

Speaking to the BBC, Volkov said that construction of major Olympic facilities in Sochi is being done "too hastily, without a proper system for the engineering research that would be appropriate for these environmental dangers.”

Numerous ecologists have been voicing concerns ...

Sochi Mayor Orders Residents to Paint Roofs Red

As the Black Sea city of Sochi continues preparations for the 2014 Winter Olympics, experts are warning of rampant ecological damage, dangerously low-quality construction, rights violations against evicted residents, and an unresponsive organizational bureaucracy. But while the mayor of neighboring Krasnaya Polyana considers resigning in protest, the mayor of Sochi has been more focused on giving the city what can only be described as a Soviet-inspired makeover.

"We are bringing the city to a unified architectural look, and therefore, our roofs and fences must be identical,” said Mayor Anatoly Pakhomov at a session of the city administration on Tuesday.

To that end, the mayor ordered all private home owners to paint their roofs red. "All of the roofs must be red, and not blue,” he said, without clarifying what was wrong with blue.

Since winning the bid to hold the Olympics in June 2007, the Russian government ...

Federal Envoy Calls For Concession To Circassians

Aleksandr Khloponin has attempted to defuse tensions.

April 22, 2010
Within weeks of his appointment as president of the Karachayevo-Cherkessia Republic (KChR) in September 2008, Boris Ebzeyev managed to antagonize the republic's Circassian minority by naming a Greek, rather than a Circassian, to head the republic's new government. 

That perceived slight was instrumental in fuelling Circassian demands that the existing borders between the North Caucasus republics be redrawn to create a Circassian republiccomprising the territories where Circssians currently constitute a majority of the population.

In an attempt to defuse mounting tensions between the republic's two titular ethnic groups, North Caucasus Federal District head Aleksandr Khloponin yesterday gave Ebzeyev until May 1 to name a Circassian as the new prime minister.

The Karachais are the largest ethnic group in Karachayevo-Cherkessia (38 percent of the total population of 427,500), followed by the Russians (33.6 percent); the Circassians account for just 11.3 percent. 

The unwritten agreement ...

"During the XVIII-XIX centuries Circassians were very well known in the world - he told Radio Adygeya. - And above all, their struggle for independence. The Europeans compared Circassians with the young David, victor in an unequal battle with Goliath. The difference is that the Circassians were unable to overcome the enemy because of its multiplicity.

According to him, in the book he submitted at the presentation there is includes of about 130 illustrations, including maps of the European sources of that time. These case histories he then - in the days of proclamation of the Republic of Adygea - ...
