Not sure what this means. My guess is that just the notion that this has grabbed Mr. Putin’s attention has Russian athletics officials scrambling. I am not sure anyone would have believed that Russia would possibly be expelled from the global sports arena.

A Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted by Russian state news agencies
as saying the reason for the cancellation was heavy rain that has restricted flights
in and out of Sochi, the host city of last year’s Winter Olympics.
