US Senator Richard Blumenthal said on Tuesday that he will send a letter to the organizers of the FIFA World Cup with the request to remove the 2018 games from Russia after their political complacency in Syrian war crimes. This was reported by News 8.
“I’m hoping that this letter will bring out the best, the better angels of the world soccer federation members, but I’m prepared to take next steps if necessary. This kind of hosting of the championships of the World Cup has more than just a symbolic message – it rewards Russia – it enables Putin to be the big man on stage which is what feeds his ego to do more of this kind of complacency and some of the most horrific and heinous actions the world has ever seen,” Richard Blumenthal said.
Earlier it was reported that Ukrainian athlete Oleg Verniaiev won at World Cup of Gymnastics in London. Verniaiev topped the honor roll with a total score of 83.864.
