Sarkozy didn't attend the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in 2010.French President Francois Hollande to shun Sochi games
Neither President Francois Hollande nor any top French official will attend the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia
The German President at the time, Horst Köhler, didn't attend either.
How many world leaders - and EU Commissioners - attended the 2010 Winter Olympics?
Can you think of any? lol
These people - Hollande, Gauck, etc - weren't going in the first place and are just using this as an excuse to vilify Russia.
