Russia Denounces Provocation to Sabotage FIFA World Cup

Broadcasting regulator Ofcom issued a statement on Tuesday, following Prime Minister Theresa May's update on the investigation to parliament on Monday, and said it would wait for her next public comments on Wednesday before considering "the implications for RT's broadcast licences".

'It's important fans pay attention to guidance from the Foreign Office, ' he said.

RT risks losing its licence to broadcast in Britain if United Kingdom authorities conclude that Moscow was behind a nerve agent attack in Salisbury, southern England that saw a Russian former double agent poisoned on March 4.

'Due to political tensions, you should be aware of the possibility of anti-British sentiment or harassment in Russian Federation, ' the Foreign Office said in a travel advisory.

"The FA will continue to work closely with the United Kingdom government and relevant authorities regarding our participation in this summer's World Cup and the women's World Cup qualifier in June", the FA said.
