Putin says all welcome at Olympics

Months after signing a law prohibiting distribution about same-sex relationships, Russian president Vladmir Putin announced everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, will be welcome to attend next year’s Olympics in Sochi.

“We are doing everything, both the organizers and our athletes and fans, so that participants and guests feel comfortable in Sochi, regardless of nationality, race or sexual orientation,” Putin said, according to RIA Novosti, a state-run news agency.
