#sochiproblems, your problems are irrelevant tbh. Given the general state of Russia outside of Moscow/St Petersburg, you’re lucky your hotels have roofs.
I say this as a Russian who is bemused at the shock and horror you’re expressing at the state of the hotels; welcome to Russia, I guess. That’s what it’s like. That’s what the majority of this country lives like.

What you’re seeing is merely a reflection of Russia as a whole (i.e. a shithole if you aren’t filthy rich). It’s a reflection of a massive problem.
I’m angry and I can’t put my finger on why. Garry Kasparov sums it up pretty well, though.
