Russia shouldn't host World Cup

Following the alleged shooting down of flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine, European politicians have raised doubts about Russia hosting the football World Cup in 2018. The Swedish Football Association should also campaign for the tournament to be held elsewhere, the conservative daily Svenska Dagbladet comments: "International sport has a uniting effect, and championships in team sports can be seen as peaceful competitions among nations. To allow a championship in one of the major sports to take place in a country that is occupying parts of a neighbouring country would be a mockery of the basic principle of sport. The Swedish Football Association should therefore join forces with other like-minded associations and governments and campaign for Russia to lose the World Cup 2018 unless the situation in Ukraine improves markedly in the next few months. In addition the Crimea issue must be resolved in accordance with international law."
