    Russia scientist fears arrest over Olympic warnings

    BBC News - Russia scientist fears arrest over Olympic warnings

    .
    "A senior scientist has told the BBC he has fled Russia to avoid arrest after warning of a possible disaster in the run-up to - or even during - the next Winter Olympics
    Dr Sergei Volkov,the whistle blower is in hiding in southern Ukraine because he fears being detained by Russian authorities on trumped-up criminal charges. He sent his letter after a storm destroyed a new cargo port being built in Sochi for the Olympics.

    Volkov main worry is not for the environment sp that gives him credibility. He fears the builders are cutting a swathe through the valley up towards the mountains without taking into account how unstable the area is geologically.

    I never thought the the Russians could pull off a sucessful Olympics since their management and building tecniques are no more advanced then they were under Soviet rule.

    What do you guys think should the Olympic committee give the Olympics to a good country who can get the job done or should they risk the lives of the world's Olympians ?

    It's a tough call, the Olympic committee has never claimed to be environmentally friendly, as for the venue city, I have no idea if it's ever happened, but I can't imagine them taking it away, I mean my god if FIFA didn't take the world cup away from South Africa I doubt they'll take this away from
    Russia.

    But this 'good' Russian guy is not making an environmental arguement he is talking about the fact that the geology is not right and the scshmoes are not building things right.

    Well it is an ego thing and the Ruskies think that they are still a super power.
