Boris Compares Russian President World Cup to Adolf Hilter's Olympics

She said on Facebook that Johnson's statements were "unacceptable, unworthy of a top European diplomat", adding that it reflected London's efforts to cast Russian Federation as an enemy using the most absurd reasons in order to boycott the World Cup. "It is an emetic prospect of Putin glorying in this sporting event". Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told MPs that Russian Federation would face a "robust" response from the United Kingdom and that it would be "very difficult" to imagine United Kingdom representation at the World Cup could go ahead in the "normal way".

Britain has also said it will not send ministers or members of the royal family in delegations to the World Cup, but Johnson said it would be unfair on the players for the England team itself to withdraw.

"At the moment we are not inclined actively to dissuade people from going because we want to hear from the Russians what steps they are going to take to look after our fans".

Maria Zakharova, Russian Foreign Minister, wrote on her Facebook page that Johnson is poisoned by anger and fury, unprofessionalism and rudeness.

The Dudley North MP called on Mr Johnson to reconsider England participating in the tournament.

Cambridge Analytica Isn't Facebook's Fault
The scandal has wiped out around $60 billion (48 billion euros) of Facebook's market value since Monday, Bloomberg news reported. A government announcement, however, did not say if the notice sent to the company had been issued under any law.

Johnson added that he would seek assurances from Russian Federation that it will fulfill its responsibilities, under the World Cup contract, to ensure the safety of all fans. "It is their duty under their Federation Internationale de Football Association contract to look after our fans", he said. We have a very strong team for the World Cup.

Johnson added: "This is of crucial importance to us and we do indeed need to have an urgent conversation with the Russians about how they propose to fulfil their obligations under their Federation Internationale de Football Association contract to look after all fans arriving and we certainly shall be having that conversation".

Appearing at a House of Commons committee, Mr Johnson was asked if it was possible that the attack might have been conducted by someone who was "empowered" by Mr Putin but no longer directly under his command.

Johnson has previously suggested that some British officials may boycott the World Cup. "But that doesn't mean we are not deeply concerned about how they may be treated", he said. "All facts are being intentionally hidden, and the real evidence may have already disappeared". "This has happened before in Great Britain, repeatedly", he said. Russian Federation later expelled 23 British diplomats and closed the British Council, a government-backed worldwide organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, in the country.

Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, remain hospitalized in critical condition.

'All the necessary measures are being taken and the British special authorities are in contact with Russia's special authorities to provide the security'. "In these circumstances requiring any explanations from the Russian side is simply absurd".
