KRASNAYA POLYANA, January 03, /ITAR-TASS/. President Vladimir Putin, who is making an inspection tour of the Olympic mountain cluster, has been demonstrated a very interesting facility, which is not directly related to the Olympic Games.
A maritime zoo has been created at one of the new malls for guests of the mountain cluster. Three pools have been erected at the 4th storey of the mall. One of them imitates a ground sea. A floor is covered with beach-sand. Real tropical palms add the picture.
By having gone skiing guests of the mountain resort will be able to feel as they are on the sea beach.
Earlier, Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev visited several Olympic hotels in the mountain cluster, which will be also used during the G8 summit scheduled for June 4-5.
Putin and Medvedev have visited the Psekhako hotel, which is located on the same-name ridge. The president and the premier have looked at rooms where members of the G8 delegations will live during the summit.
Later, the Russian leaders came to the Olympic hotel facilities where the summiteers gather for working sessions. Putin and Medvedev look around key rooms where the Russian president will have meetings with foreign partners.
In addition, Putin and Medvedev visited a hotel where athletes, who are training for Olympic competitions, live. The visit has become sudden for athletes.
Putin asked how athletes assess the conditions, which had been created for athletes. “The conditions are good. All is well, but there are small remarks,” one of the athletes said.
The president asked her to specify what problems she faces. “I’m telling coaches about them,” she said. “You tell coaches and you can’t tell me. Whisper me!” Putin joked. “Well, but without cameras,” she replied.
A young woman has invited the president to her room and showed him several shortcomings.
Vice-Premier Dmitry Kozak, who accompanied Putin and Medvedev, agreed with the shortcomings and pledged to close out recommendations.
