In a year, it is the football world cup in Russia. I’m a little scared. Not for soccer and not for the World Cup, but now after. What will happen after the World Cup? Is there the possibility of international boycott that is the reason why Russia has not gone to war against the whole of Ukraine?
We remember back to the Winter Olympics 2014. The whole world’s eyes were aimed at Sochi. A winter Olympics to show the world how amazing Russia is. But above all, it should show the Russians where something they could be proud of, which they could bring in the construction of their national feelings. Soon after the Olympics, Russia invaded the Crimea and subsequently played large parts of eastern Ukraine. The invasion of the Crimea came surprisingly in Ukraine, in the east, Ukraine was better prepared. This made the situation far more difficult for Russia. Ukraine could not be taken with unidentified soldiers. There had to be great strengths. Ukraine had stopped Russians most places in the east. Khrakiv, the city I live in is one of the places the rebels were thrown out.
