    Don't know.

    Maybe Russia has laws against that too. South Africa laws don't permit heterosexuals to kiss in public, do you know if Russia may have a similar law of not? Maybe this is all hyped.

    Look it up. They have a charter you know, and Russia is breaking it currently.

    Russia has no authority in the Olympic village by treaty. Putin can say what he wants.

    Undoubtedly Jesse Owens, but i don't think it won the war or otherwise atoned for having the olympics there. That's just my take on it.

    It won't ruin their lives. No one lives or dies because their nation doesn't go. It's a broken heart, not a dead heart.

    WRONG. He is a President he is NOT a King. When a President makes such a decision he must weigh such factors into consideration. He must weigh the cost to the outcome. and in this case the outcome does not even come close to the cost.

    Our athletes are not threatened. If anything, only a fine would be imposed. The law is primarily aimed at any the media, and people using the media.
