Expect no protests in Sochi’s protest park

SOCHI, Russia — In a homely park nestled under a noisy overpass, 10 miles from the Olympic Park, a woman unfurled an orange and black flag Tuesday, donned a sandwich board adorned with a picture of President Vladimir Putin, and began a solo demonstration — in support of Putin.

 This was the official Winter Olympics protest park, the only place in Sochi to hold a legal demonstration during the Games.
