Popular British actor and writer, open a homosexual, Stephen Fry addressed to the Prime Minister of Great Britain and the International Olympic Committee to boycott the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

In an open letter published on his blog, Fry compares the infringement of the rights of sexual minorities in Russia today with the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany during the Berlin Olympics in 1936, and insists on the fact that the games in Putin's Russia forever tarnish the Olympic movement.

"It is not enough to say that gay Olympians will not pursue them in the Olympic Village. In the common interest of humanity proclaimed by the Olympic Movement, the IOC must say a firm no to barbaric, fascist law passed by the Duma with the filing of Putin" — says Stephen Fry.
