#Putin “everything made in Russia looks like a Kalashnikov”
Russian President Vladimir Putin attended the unveiling of the #Olympic and Paralympic medals for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics on Monday, where he likened the games’ official torch to the AK-47 assault rifle. The medals and torch were unveiled by the games’ organising committee during the SportAccord international convention in St. Petersburg.
Putin and International Olympic Committee chief Jacques Rogge were given a tour around the convention by Sochi 2014 Organising Committee president Dmitry Chemyshenko - who showed them the torch up close.
Brandishing the specially designed object, Putin said “everything that is made in Russia looks like a Kalashnikov.” He was referring to the AK-47 assault rifle produced in the USSR by Mikhail Kalashnikov. The torch is to be sent into space to test its serviceability in extreme conditions.
Putin also inspected the gold, silver and bronze medals that will be handed to Olympians and Paralympians during the games. Produced from a combination of metal and polycarbonate, the gold, silver and bronze medals weigh between 460 and 531 grams. They feature a two-tone design evoking the jagged Caucasus mountain range that runs through south-western Russia near the Olympic venues.
Putin and Rogge held short speeches at the convention, before officials held private talks over dinner.
The 2014 Winter Olympics will take place from February 7-23 in the Russian resort city of Sochi.
