NOVO-OGAREVO, March 0. /ITAR-TASS/. Possible attempts to sabotage the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games in Russia’s Sochi, due on March 7-16, will be an act of “extreme cynicism,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday.
The president said that the 2014 Winter Paralympics is an international sports forum, which unites athletes with disabilities and at which they can “prove for themselves as well as for the whole world that they are people without any disabilities and, on the contrary, they have unlimited abilities.”
“If someone tries to sabotage [the Paralympics], it will only mean that people undertaking such attempts have nothing sacred about them," Putin noted.
