Russia + War = No World Cup for Russia Maybe

Because Russia has basically invaded Ukraine, important people in Kyiv are pretty cheesed off and that's why they want Russia thrown out of the World Cup in Brazil unless they go away.

A BBC Europe correspondent tweeted:
Ukrainian ambassador to tells me one sanction they will push for if Moscow doesn't back down is expel Russia from World Cup this summer
Take that Stalin!  Russia is pretty much only famous for being utterly terrifying and I'm not even sure that's because of Western propaganda films anymore.  They're all racist, hate gays and every time I see a Russian city on TV it looks about as miserable as life can possibly be unless you live in Uganda or are Paul Daniels.  And I come from Aberdeen so that's really saying something
