IOC CHIEF OPPOSES OLYMPIC BOYCOTT CALLS

UNITED NATIONS: International Olympic Committee chief Thomas Bach hit out at calls for protests and a boycott of the Sochi Winter Olympics over Russia’s anti-gay legislation. But a UN General Assembly resolution calling for an Olympic truce during the Sochi Games included a landmark call for host countries like Russia “to promote social inclusion without discrimination of any kind.” Russia has faced a widespread Internet campaign and calls from celebrities and gay rights groups for protests at Sochi over Russia’s law banning gay propaganda.
