Kinda takes the whole prestige thing away and flushes it down the toilet. Russia should know better by now, but I guess not.
In a country with so much poverty its just an awful waste of money. Deplorable really.
But it usually is wherever the high priced Olympics goes.
People need food and water. But hey, give em a far away look at those fancy shiny medals. That'll fill em with confidence that everything is good.
