Western journalists have been reporting issues at Sochi hotels and event venues ahead of the games, including unfinished accommodations, toxic running water, bees in their honey and bizarre bathroom setups, including twin toilets at the press center.

But Kozak insisted that he has not seen that many complaints about accommodations and that most grievances were about "small imperfections."

"We've put 100,000 guests in rooms and only gotten 103 registered complaints and every one of those is being taken care of," he said.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
