The Irony of Fate. The British should come to Russia before the start of the World Cup 2018

32
Ironically, British fans and officials will “have to” visit Russia even before the start of the football world championship. The fact is that today, in Nyon, Switzerland, as a result of the draw for the quarterfinal games of the Europa League, London-based Arsenal took CSKA as a contender. Games between the Russian and English teams will be held on 5 and 12 on April.


The Irony of Fate. The British should come to Russia before the start of the World Cup 2018


Recall that just on the eve of the British newspapers caught the hysteria of the Cabinet of Ministers Theresa May, who announced that British officials "refuse to visit Russia during the World Cup 2018." At the same time, some British fan groups declared that they might not go to a trip to the World Cup games from a trip to Russia. As a voiced reason - the same ridiculous accusations against Russia, allegedly of involvement in the poisoning of the former GRU officer Sergey Skrypal and his daughter.

The Russian Foreign Ministry noted that they regretfully look at another attempt by Western “partners” to mix sport and politics. Smolensk Square claims that Sripal’s poisoning in this context, official London, is trying to turn it into a political matter, appointing the perpetrators at the preliminary stage of the investigation.

Now we should expect the reaction of the British media and officials to the lot, which brought the English football team to the Russian one against the background of the London scandalous scandal with the “involvement of the Russian Federation in poisoning”.

        And in CSKA exactly the opposite, only six legionnaires from them are now constantly based on four - Natho, Wernbloom, Musa and Vitigno. This is the most Russian club among the leading clubs in Russia. For comparison in national team 16 legionnaires. In the gas Zenit nine.

      If in England football players are smarter than their politicians, then what does the state mean to the British? lol What can I say, even if they don’t even have their own constitution, and the queen is a member of the international financial mafia.

      The game is in this case in our territory. Therefore, we can well shake the tubes and send the England team home. But on the other hand, such teams as England, France, Germany are making the World Cup box office, therefore, I think our sports committee will be nobly silent.

        The whole trick is that the tubes will be tested WITHOUT us. Well, the Russians will also be completely scratched ... like Sochi.

          And that we have canceled drug control? There is no meldonium, to take for a couple grams of heroin, "skillfully hidden in the anus." The investigation, the court and the serving of sentences in our territory ....

    Well, football is good, but they don’t want to and will not persuade that there will be no officials and royal couple, and to hell with them. And for the fans, yes, it’s better not to go, they probably still remember how ours, in the minority in 2016, made a flyie ...

    Sometimes you have to wonder at the stupidity of our British partners. Someone from Britain, unfortunately forgot the website address, wrote that it was the Russian “newcomer” who was used, because the Russian “newcomer” has a sharp characteristic odor. I recalled a lieutenant colonel who taught us the course of Combat Poisons. He once told us about the smell of chlorine, hydrocyanic acid and so on. Then he squinted slyly and said, but no one knows how to smell the NW agents. In general, there were industrial accidents, but no one had time to say.

    I, as a Kaliningrader, fully support the desire of Britain to disrupt the World Cup 18. With our urban infrastructure, June-July of this year is a very thick polar fox for the entire region!
