SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Russian opposition leader and anti-corruption campaigner Alexei Navalny launched a website to publish data pointing to corruption in Sochi.

Russia has spent about $51 billion to deliver the Winter Olympics in Sochi, which run Feb. 7-23, making them the most expensive Olympics ever.

Navalny’s website — Sochi.FBK.info — combines his own investigations of alleged corruption in Sochi with media reports and other activists’ analysis.
