The closing ceremony not only subverted the technical glitch of the opening ceremony in what was called "optimistic wistfulness", but it also showcased the standing of Russian culture in world art. It was promised before the event that the closing ceremony will be a European vision of Russian culture.
"The audience will be presented with a European vision of Russia. Spectators of the Closing Ceremony at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games will once again meet Lubov (Love), the young girl who was already introduced during the Opening Ceremony. Along with her new friends Valentina and Yura, she will travel through Russian culture, turning the pages of Russian literature, enjoying the magic of Russian art and listening to the wonderful sounds of Russian music," a press release informing the plan for the closing ceremony stated earlier.
