Although Russia has spent fantastic sums of money on the infrastructure and facilities for the games, much of that money was embezzled, and what wasn't stolen was badly spent. The authorities spent $200 million per mile for one of the roads built for the games, which as one Russian magazine calculated, was enough to have paved it with beluga caviar. But transportation can easily turn out to be a major problem at Sochi. There may be exorbitantly expensive roads and train lines, but if they are badly managed and operated, getting around the events may turn out to be a nightmare. Russia is not known for managing complicated systems effectively or efficiently, and keeping the buses and trains running on time for 125,000 visitors may well overwhelm the operators.
