Putin's Corrupt Games
The Anti-Corruption Foundation are celebrating the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics with a Google Map identifying officials and businessmen who have turned the games into a handy source of income. The map allows users to discover the corruption behind the venues and infrastructure built for the games and the individuals who have profited.
The Champions of Corruption map categorizes the corruption into five 'different sports', 'Classic Embezzlement', 'Verbal Freestyle', 'Ecological Multi-Sport', 'Pair Contract' and 'Figure Lending'. The navigation buttons at the top of the map allow the user to navigate to and learn about the corruption behind the venues, view the overall corruption 'winners' and to view a breakdown of the overall cost of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
