Again these stereotypes ... In the USSR in 1980, the Summer Olympics in Moscow took place, which was far from the worst in its time, although many believed that something terrible was happening in the country, behind the Iron Curtain, bears in hats were walking -shankas, drunken faces, totalitarianism, balalaika players and other symbols of the state. In 2014, the Winter Olympics took place. The Ukrainian crisis was in full swing, Crimea returned to Russia, everyone was talking about Putin and his power. The world was on the verge of an information conflict. People from other countries did not understand what was happening with Russia, they began to remember the USSR. However, the country hosted, in my opinion, the best Winter Olympics I have ever seen. Now let's get back to the DPRK. I think that Kim Jong-un (if we talk about modern Korea) would not have lowered the authority of his country and would have made the Olympics at the proper level. Moreover, Koreans do not look dejected in the photos. If the media in this country lie like that (a shot minister, Koreans in the Sun, etc.), then it will obviously take care of holding a suitable Olympiad. The only thing that can discourage you is a lead medal in the heart of every losing Korean from the north and a lead medal in the heart of a victorious Korean from the south.
P.s .: sorry for the mistakes
