British media alerts english fans – stating they are under severe threats during their stay in russia at the world championship in football 2018. Main threats are homofobia and racism, the members of the british parliament declared during the last meeting.
Last Friday, the head of the British Parliament said that the upcoming World Cup in Russia poses a serious threat to more than 10,000 fans from England. The main dangers are around the city center of the game and at the fan zones. According to the parliament, anyone who walks with the Union Jack (British flag) will be at serious risk of attacks.
The degree of homophobia and racism in Russia is high, and still rising. The situation is further aggravated by the latest events in the UK with Sergei Skripal, which lead to closure of the Consulate in Skt. Petersburg in Russia. Relations between Moscow and England are shaky, therefore, the UK authorities are concerned about their Citizens.
“Russian hooligans pose a serious danger to LGBT fans during the World Cup”, –
said Tom Tugendhat – head of Parliament. He demands that the Russian authorities provide full information about upcoming events for fans from England, so that football fans know exactly how to minimize risks.
LGBT representatives from England already received two threatening letters, one of which contained a photograph of a knife. The letters say that LGBT representatives will not be welcome guests in Russia. Such a situation worries the members of parliament. In addition, British fans in Russia will only wait for a “contract to die” by coming over, Russian fans post on the social network VKontakte (Russian version of Facebook).
Remember the Euro 2016 match in Marseille, where Russian and English fans got into a fight? It also turned out badly, where 100 British Citizens were injured and 30 were hospitalized.
