June 7 2005

Bid Committee "Moscow 2012" on the whole satisfied with the report of the IOC Evaluation Commission. So on Monday night reacted to the publication of a report to the committee chairman, vice-mayor Valery Shantsev. As he assures us, conclusions about the chances of competitors from the report of the IOC Evaluation Commission should not do.

At the same time, according to Shantsev, in a report, "there are some points" which are not completely satisfied with the Bid Committee in Moscow. This applies to sociological studies showing the number of inhabitants of Moscow, supporting extension of the city, said the vice-mayor "Our case studies show that the application supports 90 percent of Muscovites, and an estimated 77 percent of the IOC," - said Shantsev.

Meanwhile, foreign media to report the results of the IOC Evaluation Commission unanimously recorded in Moscow outsiders. As it turns out the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, a report compiled in such a way that it should read between the lines. But scattered in the 123-page text hints absolutely unambiguous. For example, Paris and London, the main favorites, received for his presentation evaluation "very high quality." Have not lost their final chance to Madrid and New York have received the mark just a "high quality". At the same time, Moscow instead of the corresponding estimate received a caution for lack of detailed planning, which did not allow the Commission to fully evaluate the project, according to Russian news service.
