Someone came out and admitted that the ministry in charge of the Olympics was getting a 12% kick back on all Sochi related construction contracts. Duffel bag financial at its best. This is the biggest theft in Russia since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Where is the money coming from? I though they paid for it. So that would equal me paying for a $5 bag of chips then taking $2 back.
