Sochi Turning into Resort for Super-Rich Russians

According to The Independent, the Olympics-2014 has become a handy reason for creation of a comfortable Sochi resort for Russian tycoons. It is planned to spend nearly £3 billion on constructing an artificial archipelago shaped like Russian mainland.
      Recently the world-famous Dutch architect Erick Van Egeraat has presented a project of a group of artificial islands with a resort complex called Federation Island. Supposedly the total area of the archipelago on the Black Sea will be around 330 hectares and it will be located near the city of Sochi, 15 kilometres distant from Adler Airport.
      The British newspaper The Independent is sure that creation of the archipelago Federation Island is aimed at attracting the Russian super-rich who are said to demonstrate their patriotism these days. The newspaper also writes that the archipelago is seemingly an analogue of Dubais Palm and World artificial islands.
      Some Russian architects express an opinion that from a business point of view the projects is likely to be successful but there are doubts about its functional and ecological qualities.
