Considering the best skiing in Russia is between Sochi and Elbrus, it actually makes perfect sense.
Basically this.

As I mentioned in the previous thread, I am a Westerner that has worked in Russia for the past seven years. I have little concern about the Sochi Olympics. I will probably run into Xokkeu at the games

A lot of the comments in this thread are hilarious Makes good reading.
