Putin has been working (sort of) to repair his image before the Winter Olympics come to town. Since I haven't seen much U.S. news over the holidays I don't know if much is being said on this. But I did read this Al Jazeera America article that I thought I would pass on to you Russia's Olympics losing game over gays, human rights.
As a related article in the Dallas Morning News Shades of 1936 Olympics as Sochi games approach notes "So far, much of the pushback from the international community has been tepid, diplomatically framed."
