MOSCOW, February 06. /ITAR-TASS/. World politics personages, who had imagined themselves and decided not to arrive in Sochi at the Olympic Games, rejected an invitation by the International Olympic Committee (OIC) and not Russia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“This is nonsense. I can’t remember that the Olympic Games, wherever they were, were accompanied by such talks and discussions how many heads of state arrived there. No one has ever calculated. When one started calculating decided that it was necessary to do harm to Russia to make it feel uncomfortable,” Lavrov said.
“How many heads of state were in Vancouver or in London? No one has ever calculated. We’ve started doing this because questions were asked by different parties. Now we can say forty-four heads of state will take part in the opening ceremony. Totally, sixty heads of state will arrive in Sochi to attend the Olympic Games. Draw up the conclusions!” the minister said.
