Russian President Vladimir Putin leaves 10 Downing Street

“We are doing everything, both the organizers and our athletes and fans, so that participants and guests feel comfortable in Sochi, regardless of nationality, race or sexual orientation…”

Russian President Vladimir Putin insisted that gay participants and attendees of the upcoming 2014 Olympic festivities in Sochi will be welcome. Given Russia’s harsh anti-gay laws and the backlash they’ve been receiving, that’s hard to imagine, but here’s hoping he keeps his word. Russia has received international criticism for its criminalization of homosexuality, and that’s making for a tense lead-up to the Olympics. [TIME] [Image via WENN]
