In the British Parliament are hearing about the boycott of the world Cup in Russia.

In the British Parliament are discussing the possibility of boycotting the 2018 world Cup, which will be held in Russia.

MP from the labour party Ian Austin said that the England team should boycott the tournament and compared the President of Russia Vladimir Putin with the leader of Nazi Germany Adolf Hitler.

“Putin is going to use the 2018 world Cup as Hitler used the Olympic games of 1936.

I don’t think the England team should participate in this. I don’t think we should support Putin, is using this tournament as a PR event to mask the gross violations of human rights, for which he bears responsibility”, – quotes the Austin Sky Sports.

The Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain, Boris Johnson agreed with Austin.

“I think your characterization of what will be in Moscow at the world championship in all cities is definitely a true comparison with the year 1936.

Frankly, I think, to participate in the glorification of Putin through a sporting event – it’s a vile term,” said Johnson.

Earlier it was reported that the Ministers of great Britain and members of the Royal family will not attend the world Cup in Russia.
