Disgraced oligarchs robbed the Moscow Olympics

July 8 2005

July 6 was named the capital of the Summer Olympics of 2012. Among the nominees for the title were Madrid, Paris, New York, London and the Russian capital - Moscow. Chose London.

All TV channels showed footage of universal peace happy insanity in Trafalgar Square, in various pubs and restaurants, where ordinary residents of the UK welcomed the choice of the IOC.

However, were shown, and distorted by grief and anger faces of Parisians, Real Madrid and Muscovites. And the thing is, apparently, not only in a sort of mercantile interests - the case of prestige, a sense of their own election. You can understand them, because at the altar of victory was charged almost everything: huge funds, the prestige of the country (the idea of holding the 2012 Olympics in support of senior persons), etc.

During the trip, the IOC Evaluation Commission for the competing cities, the head of the commission Nawal El Moutawakel said about the same thing: "We understand that if you have the opportunity to hold the Olympics, your people will be very happy."

During the visit, Mrs El Moutawakel and her entourage, the power of the mayor gorodopretendentov not afraid to seem ridiculous, put on sportswear and "recklessly" drove with the boys in football, basketball, etc. For "indulging" high sports management, used all sorts of tricks, admissible rules, sometimes the Bid Committee acted on the verge of "foul".

As a result of the inspection evaluation team summarized - the chances of cities are equal. In every Olympic project were cons, but they more than offset the advantages.

The last city that was visited by the commission, was our capital. Many skeptics in Russia and outside it said, "Moscow has no chance - it is a definite underdog of this race." Very curious to see the faces of these "experts" when at the conclusion of the inspection of Olympic facilities in Moscow, the head of the evaluation commission said: "An application of Moscow is very serious. We looked at all objects. The team that worked on this application, had an excellent job, - said El -Moutawakel - you must not assume that Moscow unsuccessful candidate in the fight for the right to make the 2012 Olympic Games. "

Moreover, she stressed: "We really liked the concept of the" Olympic River ", and that competition will take place within the boundaries of one city. It is very important because it is written in the Olympic Charter."

"We have provided all necessary safeguards for safety and presentation on this subject was very good," - said El Moutawakel. The words of the famous athletes in the past, shed blessed elixir of hope in the hearts of Russians are unsure. In our country the Olympic dream to believe.

But it was former Russian citizens living abroad now done everything to vilify image of our country. Disgraced oligarchs brought his old song about the war in Chechnya, about the persecution of businessmen and so on. Peak rabid statements Berezovsky, Zakayev, Nevzlin came just in time before the decisive vote. It seems that these people who have "the stigma of a gun" and the money that bought from many media and become the decisive argument in the rejection of Moscow. It is well known - in the West, money and morality does not smell.

But time will put everything in its place. Great Britain did not have time to celebrate the victory, as the invisible brothers terrorists staged a London test of strength. Sometime in the distant 1980 Western propagandists pereinachennuyu sang a song of "Genghis Khan" - "Mosca, Mosca Throwing bombs, you will be the Olympics, but ha-ha-ha!Then failed, failed today. By coincidence, threw bombs London. Maybe instead of Moscow by inertia? , Because someone asked to continue the banquet.
