Boris Johnson likens Russian Federation hosting World Cup to Hitler's 1936 Olympics

British Foreign Minister on Wednesday compared newly re-elected Russian President Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler, saying that Russia hosting the World Cup is akin Germany hosting the Olympic Games during the Third Reich.

Moscow responded with a reciprocal measure: the same number of employees of the British diplomatic mission were declared as persons non grata, the work of the British Council in Russian Federation was suspended and the Consulate General of the United Kingdom in St. Petersburg was closed.

Mr Johnson said the United Kingdom authorities had been cooperating with Russians at a "policing level" but there were now questions as to how that would continue.

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.

"It is an emetic prospect to think of Putin glorifying in this sporting event".

In addition to Britain, Iceland, Denmark and Poland have been planning a diplomatic protest to the World Cup to be held in Russian Federation over the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

He was the one behind the team's zany "Techno Thursday" movement of dance music playing incessantly and laughably short shorts. Ebron had one year left on his rookie contract after the team picked up his fifth-year option last offseason.

Located in Russia's westernmost enclave the city of Kaliningrad built a completely new stadium for the 2018 World Cup on the Oktyabrsky Island.

But he said the government was "at the moment not inclined to actively dissuade people from going". "Putin is going to use it in the way Hitler used the 1936 Olympics".

"I frankly do not think England should be participating in the World Cup", he added.

Russian Federation is hosting the World Cup this Summer and opposition Member of Parliament Ian Austin said Putin would use the tournament to improve Russia's image, comparing it to when Hitler's Germany hosted Olympics.

The spokesman added that "decisions on what the [England] team do are not for the government".

In a letter to The Times, Purslow suggested that should fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies Germany, France and Spain join England in a boycott, it would have a significant impact on Russian Federation and the country's President Vladimir Putin.
