The Evgeni Vitishko story. Is a boycott of Sochi Olympics brewing?

My environmentally-concerned friends are telling me about possible/likely imprisonment of an ecologist activist Evgeni Vitishko. Vitishko spray-painted a fence constructed around Krasnodar governor Tkachev’s dacha build on public land and in a protected forest near Sochi. That got him cited under “causing significant property damage”.

First he was given a suspended sentence but didn’t get the hint, continued being vocal on environmental issues around the Sochi Olympics, so another court hearing is set for December 30(?) to turn these suspended three years into real Russian prison. Their request is that I post the story. Here it is. Let me see if it made it to world news… Yes it did: see

olympic.cbc.ca,
crudeaccountability.org,
frontlinedefenders.org,
hro.rightsinrussia.info,
hrw.org etc.

It’s been 3-4 weeks since I looked into the news, and the overall situation appears byzantinesque perverse. The dictionary says there is no such word as “byzantinesque”. Жопа есть, а слова нет. Also just a second, Sochi? That’s subtropics! There is no snow there in February, and temperatures are well above freezing. Doesn’t winter sports need snow? Either I or this world need to see a shrink.

DISCLAIMER: THE ABOVE IS POSTED FOR ITS INFORMATIONAL VALUE ONLY. IT DOES NOT NECESSARILY REFLECT MY VIEWS AND OPINIONS. I HEREBY DECLARE MY LOYALTY TO THE REGIME AND READINESS TO KISS PU’S ASS RATHER THAN GOING TO PRISON. I’M NOT THE SORT OF HUMAN MATERIAL HEROS ARE MADE OF.

  1. Well I guess they can buy 2.500 snow guns in Tyrol and pull Sochi under a blizzard of snow, helped by giant centrifugal fans plus a NH3 chiller delivering -25 cold air to create brine effects, the americans and the chinese will like this …

  2. Thank you for your comments. From what I see now authentic comments (damn search engines seem to recognize fakes even with forged IP addresses, f*ck progress; I long for days when adding “sex” and “prostitutes” in white letters over white background gave you a guaranteed place among top ten) is the easiest way to get hits, and I need hits to get business in this Kandalaksha hole. No business and by April I’m done with, has been nice knowing you all. I’ve been surviving from leftover Moscow stuff but six months of promoting Kola got me not a single client. From what I see I’m the only motherflicker idiot who is here and awake and will respond enquiries. Thinking of moving back to Moscow where my services are requested about once a week. “Too noisy” he said. “Bad air.” What a fussy sissy!

  3. What’s that scoop on a 43 million euro contract to shoot off or gas stray dogs? I was playing with the idea of coming to Soshi but donlt want to find myself in a place full of fresh ghosts of homleless dogs.
