SOCHI, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin holds that the city of Sochi could join programs for development of healthcare services and education. He said this at the meeting with representatives of the public council that was in charge with the preparation for the Winter Olympic Games.
The president remarked that he was asked earlier in the day if Sochi could participate in development of domestic tourism, which also envisages financing hotel construction. The president recalled that hotels for 41,000 places have already been built in Sochi. “To be honest, we don’t know how to fill these places. Then why allocate funds into building more hotels,” he asked.
The head of state suggested considering other spheres. “I, for instance, believe the condition of healthcare services is not quite good in Sochi,” Putin stressed. He said Sochi has plenty of problems in this area. Putin acknowledged, though, that prior to the Olympic construction these services did not stand up to scrutiny.
