Environmentalists ‘correct’ the Olympic facilities in Sochi On Monday, the Sochi meeting was held under the leadership of Russian Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov, devoted to construction of Olympic facilities Olympics in 2014. The need for such a meeting was due to the fact that environmentalists and representatives of various environmental companies have protested against the construction of the Olympic facilities, which in their opinion, may cause damage to the nature of the Krasnodar Territory. Requirements conservationists include the transfer of some Olympic venues, new roads and power lines. The main protest of ecologists is associated with the construction bobsleigh track, biathlon complex, mountainous Olympic Village and a number of infrastructural facilities in the buffer zone of nature reserve ‘West Caucasus’ and a pear ridge (the area of Polyana).
However, the head of state corporations ‘Olympstroy’ Semyon Weinstock said that without making concessions to environmentalists in Sochi, and all the Olympic facilities will be built strictly in accordance with the bid book and their transfer will be performed. Recall that World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and ‘Greenpeace’ appealed to Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov, an appeal not to post any Olympic sites in the protected zone of the Caucasian Nature Reserve in the river basin Psluh and a pear ridge. 6000 signatures of citizens of Russia with a demand to prevent the destruction of unique natural complexes of the Western Caucasus have already been transferred to the ioc and unesco. To save the reserve by unesco experts are ready to sue the International Olympic Committee to demand to deprive Russia of the right to host the Olympic Games..
