Some sports media is dumping on Russia right now for “rigging the Olympics”, at least for the women’s figure skating. At the same time the media is propping up these very possibly CIA-backed “freedom fighters” in Ukraine while Russia denounces more US interference in another sovereign nation’s affairs.
Could it be the Olympics are setting up anti-Russia sentiment by awarding some undeserved medals to them? Is it over-speculation?
