UN: Russia holds reception at UN HQ in run-up to World Cup 2018

The Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations hosted a presentation and reception called “15 days to 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia” at the UN Headquarters in New York City on Friday evening. Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya expressed his hope that attendance at the championships would give more people a chance to get to know Russian culture and... Еще traditions. He said: «we are expecting spectators to come from around the world who will learn Russia not from newspapers but learn about Russian life and hopefully bring a part of Russia back home with them.» Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres wished Russia success in hosting the flagship tournament and joked about his team — Portugal — playing against Morocco during his upcoming visit to Russia. Guterres said: «it happens that by coincidence that during a visit to the Russian Federation, I will be able to see my own team. I'm not sure if the distinguished ambassador of Morocco is here. But one of us will be very sad at the end of this meeting.»
