Russia’s biggest summer resort, Sotchi, was chosen as the venue of the Winter Olympic Games of 2014. President Putin promised snow for the Games, no traffic jams and big investments in building the Olympic facilities. How did it effect the neighbouring small villages? If they survived the development, could they continue the life they ware used to?

 

Venemaa üks suuremaid suvekuurorte Sotši on valitud 2014 aasta taliolümpiamängude toimumiskohaks. President Putin on olümpiamängudeks lubanud küllaldaselt lund, liiklusummikute puudumist ning suurt investeerimist olümpiarajatiste ehitusse. Mida toovad need muutused kaasa väikestele Eesti küladele seal piirkonnas? Kas ümberkaudsetel väikestel küladel õnnestub alles jääda ja säilitada oma endine elurütm?
