Six British officers to provide security at 2018 FIFA World Cup

Six UK law-enforcement officers will be involved in measures to provide security at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, First Deputy Chief of the Russian Interior Ministry’s Department for Security of Large International and Mass Sports Events Police Major-General Anton Gusev said.

"Six British officers will be providing security at the World Cup," Gusev said.

"We have considered all the risks and threats and are ready to cut short all public order offences. We feel very loyal to fans who will celebrate. Possibly, we will ignore minor offences but we are ready to act toughly in any place and at any time against offenders," TASS cited the police general as saying.

The matches of the 2018 World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15 at 12 stadiums located in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara.
