2018 World Cup studium falls into disrepair in Volgograd
The Volgograd authorities have declared the state of emergency out of a rainstorm.
Volgograd faced a heavy rain on July 15; a third of the monthly precipitation norm fell. As a result, a bulk slope was destroyed at the Volgograd Arena stadium, which took four matches of the 2018 World Cup group stage.
The consequences of heavy rain hit residents footages. Heavy rain contributed to the sudden collapse, with footage posted online showing torrents of water washing away the sandy earth in the embankment, according to KP-Volgograd. Now there is a colossal hole instead of lawn. Tons of clay and sand are washed away to Nulevaya Prodolnaya (the popular name of Marshala Krylova Street - Ed.). Cars are bogged down. Vehicles, drivers, and passengers became hostages of the raging elements. The pedestrian path deteriorates.
The Volgograd authorities have declared the state of emergency out of the rainstorm. Volgograd media noted that several large shopping centers submerged due to heavy rain, and new 'lakes' appeared all over the city, in particular, on Lenina Avenue, the main transport highway of Volgograd.
Volgograd Arena was built for the 2018 World Cup. The cost of its erection amounted to almost 16.5 billion rubles ($264m). The stadium, which holds 45 thousand spectators, hosted four games of the 2018 World Cup: Tunisia - England (1:2), Nigeria - Iceland (2:0), Saudi Arabia - Egypt (2:1), Japan - Poland (0:1). FC Rotor will host this stadium later.
Earlier it was reported that rainstorm destroyed the embankment in Nizhny Novgorod built for the World Cup. The abundant precipitation washed away the slope. After the rains, part of the pavement was also destroyed.
The decision on the undesirability of one of the most influential thieves in law Tariel Oniani’s (Mulukhov) stay in Russia after his release next year was taken on August 6 by Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev. After Oniani’s release, the MIA explained, he will be expelled from Russia for life.
The gray cardinal of Karachay-Cherkessia (KChR), Senator Rauf Arashukov used opportunities to influence the Cherkessian community of the region, especially youth. He was nominated to the post of Prime-Minister of the republic. However, no one shared his political wishes and methods of struggle. According to the sources of The CrimeRussia, the Senator masterminded the murder of youth movement leader Aslan Zhukov in 2010. Many people knew about, the witnesses of a high-profile crime testified against him. But the political weight and ties terminated the case. And even the self-proclaimed killer was unable to prove his guilt in court. However, as it became known the other day, six years after his acquittal, he gave himself up once again.
