I just hope the people who helped make this happen watch out for polonium sandwiches.

Of course Putin is blaming the United states for this because he could in no way no how cause an olympic doping scandal at an Olympics he was hosting. It's his typical defense when the Russian people get mad at him, to blame the United States for everything.

Just another example of him pretty much taking all the worst parts of the Soviets and continuing that legacy.

Though I don't know if he's caused any famines yet, he's at least continued the blame-shifting for his problems and the suppression of free speech for his political adversaries much in the same way.
