    MOSCOW: A renowned Kremlin critic on Thursday accused President Vladimir Putin’s government and its allied tycoons of stealing tens of billions of dollars assigned for construction of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. Opposition leader and former top cabinet member Boris Nemtsov and his report’s co-author Leonid Martynyuk —a member of the anti-Kremlin Solidarity movement—said about $25-30 billion of the estimated $50 billion assigned to the Games has gone missing. Putin has already expressed frustration at the rising costs of the Games, that are now on track to become the most expensive in Olympic history.
