England threats to boycott World Cup would hurt ties and World Sport - Russia

Following Boris Johnson suggestion that England could pull out of this summer's World Cup, he had since received a lot of criticism for thinking so shallow. 

However, Russia’s foreign ministry said on Monday that British threats to boycott the 2018 FIFA World Cup would damage ties with Moscow and hurt world sport, Interfax news agency reported.

Prime Minister Theresa May said earlier on Monday it was “highly likely” that Moscow was responsible for the attack that killed the Russian spy. 

Some British officials have suggested boycotting the Russia-hosted World Cup later this year in response.

“We want to emphasize once again: such provocative statements, which fan anti-Russian hysteria, only complicate relations between our countries and are blow to world sport,” Interfax quoted the ministry as saying in a statement. (Reuters/NAN).
