VLADIVOSTOK, February 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Thanks to the Winter Olympic Games the city of Sochi has changed for the better, and Russia has obtained an outstanding resort, Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev said in an interview with the Vesti on Sunday television show.
“Russia has obtained an outstanding resort city to be proud of; initiatives of the kind always come with comments about something bad, it was time as I was blamed to have spent too much money for Astana (Kazakhstan’s capital city replacing old Almaty). Nowadays Astana is a donor for Kazakhstan’s budget, and the product it offers has exceeded the past expenses,” Nazarbayev said. “It is great that now Russia has a city of the kind. I have met Sochi’s mayor here, and he said the communications in the city, which had not been repaired for decades, are in order now. It means that now this city will attract visitors.”
