Ukraine v. Russia - World Cup

Recommended Posts

The way things are going the wrestling team won't make it out of Ukraine. Russia controls one regions airport now and in couple weeks could control all of them! They are bringing there top guys especially at 97 and 125 so I hope they make it. This world cup is looking really good right now!

Considering the Russian team is made up almost exclusively of wrestlers from the Caucus area, a collection of regions that hate the Russian government, and view them as occupiers much like what the Russians are doing in Ukraine, I doubt it will be that heated a dual.

Pretty sure over half of the population of Crimea is Russian. Not sure how those people feel about Putin's actions.

 

I'm currently reading the book that Jaroslav recommended, "Let Our Fame Be Great", and it sure seems like history is repeating itself once again with this Ukraine crisis. The book also covers a tremendous amount of info regarding the Caucus regions and Russia.

 

Hope all the teams make it here safely for the World Cup.
