The European Parliament supports the initiative to deprive Russia of the right to host the finals of the World Cup in 2018 because of the aggression against Ukraine.

This is stated in the draft resolution prepared by the “Green” political group in the European Parliament.

“The European Parliament considers that FIFA should suspend preparations for World Cup 2018 to be held in Russia as long as the aggression against Ukraine continues,” says the project document.

The “Green” faction also welcomed the decision of UEFA on prohibiting both Crimean clubs’ participation – from 1 January 2015 – in tournaments under the auspices of the Football Federation of the Russian Federation, and the organization of football matches in Crimea without the consent of both UEFA and the Football Federation of Ukraine.
