Moscow, 4 January 2014 (MIA) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday
reversed a blanket ban on protests at the Sochi Winter Olympics, bowing to
pressure from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), AFP reports.
Russia had initially banned any political protests in Sochi during the
February Games as part of a tough security crackdown ostensibly aimed at
preventing attacks by Islamist militants.
