The International Olympic Committee says it is "fully satisfied" that Russia's law banning gay propaganda does not violate the anti-discrimination guarantees of the Olympic charter. IOC chairman Jean-Claude Killy said during a news conference Thursday that the committee deliberated for several days, but concluded that "the IOC doesn't have the right to discuss the ... laws that are in place in the country hosting the games" unless the Olympic charter is clearly violated.
