Alexei Kravets stands next to a fence along his former property in Sochi, Russia. Kravets and his 13-year-old son were evicted, and their three-story seaside home of nine years was bulldozed in October 2012 to make way for railway improvements that are part of Russia's preparations for the 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. Kravets has not received any compensation for his property, which an independent appraisal valued at approximately US$422,000.
