Britain to Provide Security Support for Sochi Olympics

MOSCOW, May 10 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian and British security services will cooperate in the build-up to the Winter Olympics in Sochi next year, British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Friday.

Cameron said at a conference after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin the UK will be providing “limited” support to ensure security at the Olympic Games in the Russian Black Sea resort.

The UK premier said more than 50 British companies are participating in the Sochi Olympics construction projects. “We both want the Sochi Games to be a safe and secure Game,” he said.

Putin and Cameron are later expected to go on a helicopter tour over the venues under construction for the 2014 Winter Olympics, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
