Moscow is preparing to attack after the World Cup 2018

Western experts believe that after along intense time between 2014 and 2018, Russia seized itself until the end of the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February 2014 and now after the end of the World Cup, so, Russia will take offensive action in foreign policy.

The American newspaper “Foreign Policy” is sure that the 2018 World Cup is not the ultimate goal, but only a way to achieve something more important.

Russian President Vladimir Putin spent years trying to win the right to host the Sochi Olympics in 2014.

At the start of the World Sports event, when the revolution was broke out in Ukraine, the Russian president acted so cautiously that he didn’t distract attention from Sochi.

But in the week before the closing ceremony, Daniel Bayer, the former US representative of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), said in his article that President Putin met key figures in the Kremlin and sent Russian special forces to the Crimea four days later.

The same scenario could be repeated after the World Cup.

The logic that Bayer is trying to promote is that “sporting events strengthen the image of Russia and Putin’s authority within the country and in the eyes of the international community, allowing the Kremlin to decide on offensive actions abroad”.

Moscow is in a more advantageous position, according to an expert in the journal “Poland”.

President Putin will meet President Trump, who supports Russia’s return to the Group of Eight (G8).

The author states in conclusion that “the possible actions of Putin after the end of the World Cup:

1) Activate its role in Syria.

2) Completion of the work in Ukraine by expanding the military presence.

3) Strengthening cooperation with the governments of Austria and Italy.

4) Attempts to overthrow German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Another respected US magazine, The Atlantic, is also confident that “Russia will certainly use the World Cup to achieve its geopolitical ambitions.

The magazine sees the point of tension as Ukraine”.

The article in the magazine says that “the war on water between Ukraine and Russia could begin after the World Cup on July 15″.

In support of this, the author cites the fact that there are contradictions in the Black Sea and the Sea of ​​Azov, as well as that Ukraine hampers the supply of water in the Crimea.

Through the use of the Dnieper River.

Therefore, the conflict over water resources will cause new hotbeds of conflict between Ukraine and Russia”.

Contrary to Atlantic and foreign policy, the British magazine The Economist doesn’t see the sport as a tool for moving to attack, but an opportunity to establish relations with Europe after four years of sanctions.

Of course it would be stupid to deny that the World Cup strengthens the image of the Kremlin.

After Russia’s victory over Spain, the USA Today newspaper reported that regardless of the team’s performance, Putin had already won and managed to draw the attention of foreign audiences.

However, the conclusions about the next aggression indicate a biased assessment of the situation.

The rumors of Moscow’s impending attack are only an attempt to blame Russia for the crisis that has arisen in the Atlantic camp.
