SOCHI, February 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin, who came to the Iceberg Skating Palace on Sunday to support Russian figure skaters, visited the House of Russian Fans in a break between the competitions.
The president was shown about the pavilion and was told about the exhibits displayed there, from bobsleds to skates of the Peter the Great times. Putin’s guides told him that the House had a so-called touch-screen zone, where visitors may check their knowledge about sports.
At one of the stands, the president was welcomed by legendary Russian speed skater Lydia Skoblikova.
