"Today we will participate in the opening of the Olympic Games. Today I talked to our team, and our athletes are in good spirits and they are set for victory, and we are determined to support them. I would like our victories to be vivid and memorable, and I would like our athletes to defend the honor of our country," the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers quoted him as saying at a briefing in London on Friday, July 27.
