SOCHI, February 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said although the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games was an expensive event much worth it.

Putin has met the organizers and participants in the Olympic Games opening ceremony to thank them for their work. “Financially, this was an expensive event. But much worth it in order to show the country’s history and give an application for holding all Olympic Games as a whole,” the president said.

“The show was grandiose and very bright,” he said.
