Washington, D.C. – As the 2014 Olympics prepare to open in Sochi, Russia, security issues have captured the media headlines, warning of a possible terrorist attack. But the Olympic-sized corruption of Putin and his regime has been given a pass.

Accuracy in Media has just released a blockbuster report on the state of affairs in this unfree country. Is Russia returning to its old Soviet Union ways? How many back-door deals have occurred in the run-up to the Olympics?

According to writer, researcher and librarian Nevin Gussack, “On the eve of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, we are already starting to hear about political and financial corruption in connection with the games.” 

And what has been the result of the so-called “re-set” that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed would change our relations with Russia?

In this report you will find about the crackdown on journalists, and violations of human rights in Russia. Have trade agreements made things better, or exposed the inherent problems in working with this country?

“Russia’s embrace of NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who has severely damaged U.S. surveillance activities, also suggests that the Obama/Clinton ‘re-set’ has been a complete failure,” writes Gussack.

Nevin Gussack is available to talk about these issues as the Winter Games begin. To arrange an interview, contact Spencer Irvine at 202-364-4401, ext. 103, or preferably by email at spencer.irvine@aim.org.
