“One can’t mix sports and politics, but in this case, the question if
Russia can host this large event obviously needs to be considered. I
sympathize with politicians’ call to boycott this World Cup,” Klimkin
said in an interview with Bild German newspaper.

According to him, Russian President Vladimir Putin is “the only one who can stop the war in eastern Ukraine.”

“The majority of terrorists are actually Russian citizens, many of
whom are connected to the Russian special services. They aren’t fighting
for the independence of Donbas, they’re destroying everything,” the
minister noted.
