Georgia agrees with WWF in aspect of Sochi Olympics

2010-02-17 12:49

The Foreign Ministry of Georgia shares the apprehensions of the Russian representative office of the World Wildlife Fund [WWF] stating that Russia's preparation for Sochi-2014 Olympics went out of control and inflicts enormous harm to environment.


"The Georgian Side has repeatedly indicated on the ecological crimes that were previously committed by the Russian Federation and continue to be carried out at present. Georgia has constantly addressed the relevant International Organizations as well as entire International Community on this issue," the statement of the Ministry says.

"Hereby, it is noteworthy that the extraction and export of inert materials from the river deltas' of the region of Abkhazia, Georgia to the Russian Federation for construction of the Sochi 2014 Olympic infrastructure still continues. In case this process is protracted in such a manner, the unique and fragile nature of the Black Sea coastline, adjacent to the Southern part of the Russia-Georgia's state border, will be irreparably injured that equals to the ecological catastrophe of the whole Caucasian Region," the document adds.

In November 2009 Georgia turned to the International Olympic Committee with a request to shift winter Olympics-2014 from Sochi due to security reasons.

The IOC representative confirmed the reception of that letter with the request.

The letter of Ramaz Goglidze, the first Vice-President of the National Olympic Committee says that "Sochi is a very dangerous place."
