Avakov has spoken against carrying out the 2018 world Cup in Russia
Minister of internal Affairs Arsen Avakov stands for depriving Russia of the right to host the world football championship in 2018. In his vision, " world championship 2018 shall be transferred from Russia. I think that the football Federation of Ukraine and the Cabinet of Ministers today we must take a clear position. Punishment concerning the aggressor and the sponsor of terrorism must be all over the field! Need to Express support for the position of the UK: British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg asked in a persistent form to deprive the Russian Federation of the right to hold the world football championship in 2018 and tried to convince to tougher sanctions. He said that it would be " unthinkable to give Moscow the opportunity to enjoy the prestige of holding the world tournament ". According to Clegg, the behavior of Russia has passed all bounds, and if allowed to hold the championship, then the rest of the world will show their weak and hypocritical!". Remember, first Deputy Prime Minister of the coalition government Clegg tried to convince to deprive the Russian Federation of the right to host the 2018 world Cup.
