Russia does not conceal its intention to annex territories of neighbouring states. It has eyes not just on occupied Georgian territories, but also on Azerbaijan and Armenia. The Russian athlete list for the London Olympics 2012 has South Ossetia, Armenia, Baku, and Gudauta all referred to as Russia.
On the official website of Olympic Games in London - www.london2012.com, where the files of athletes participating in the Olympics are placed, mentions birthplace of the Russian national team member Besik Kudukhov as "South Ossetia", of Dennis Tsargush – as Gudauta, Misha Aloyan - Armenian region and David Hayrapetyan - Baku. This would not have been surprising if not for a note common to all indicating that all these cities and regions is Russia.
The Georgian side has already responded to this fact. The National Olympic Committee of Georgia sent a special letter to organizers of the event, which points to the mistake. The Georgian Foreign Ministry also reacted to this fact. According to Deputy Foreign Minister Tornike Gordadze, before sending a protest note they should clarify what is meant by this designation and whether it was a mistake on purpose.
