Sochi 2014 to bring back together Russian and British intelligence services

The Russian and British intelligence services will resume contacts aborted in 2006 and work together to provide security for the 2014 Winter Games, president Vladimir Putin and UK’s prime minister, David Cameron have agreed.

UK will be providing “limited” support to ensure safety of athletes and guests during the Sochi 2014 winter games, Cameron said at the media-conference after the negotiations in the Olympic capital concluded late on Friday.

"We both want the Sochi Games to be a safe and secure Games,” he added.

No details of how this cooperation will look like have yet been revealed, but Britain surely has a lot of experience to share in the sphere.

The London Olympics, it hosted in 2012, went on without any serious incidents, thanks to over 20,000 police and military personnel providing security during the event.

The Russian and British intelligence services have aborted cooperation 6 years ago, following Moscow's refusal to extradite Andrey Lugovoy, whom the UK suspects of involvement in the poisoning death of former FSB officer, Aleksandr Litvinenko, which occurred in London the same year.
"Security service cooperation was suspended," Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesman, stressed as RBK Daily quoted him on Saturday. "It was frozen on the initiative of the British side, but nevertheless we are satisfied with their readiness to cooperate in the interests of ensuring the safe and peaceful organization of the Olympic Games in Sochi.”

After the talks, Putin and Cameron went on a helicopter tour of the venues being prepared for the Sochi Games’ kickoff on February 7, 2014.

The aerial excursion included landing at the Fisht Olympic Stadium, which was designed by the British architects firm, Populous, and constructed with the assistance companies from the UK.
The 40,000-strong venue won’t see any sporting action during the Games as it’ll be used to host the opening and closing ceremonies.

According to Cameron, more than 50 British companies are currently participating in the Sochi Olympics construction projects. source

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
