"One should probably be left alone after games like that one", Cherchesov about Smolov
The striker missed during the penalty shootout.
Stanislav Cherchesov, the head coach of the Russian national team, spoke about all the hate the striker Fyodor Smolov has been getting after he failed to score a penalty kick in the 2018 World Cup game of Russia and Croatia (2-2, 3-4 pen.).
"One should probably be left alone after games like that one. In any case, I have not said a single word to him about scoring or not scoring”, he said.
“Time will pass, we will have a thorough analysis, we’ll have a meeting and will discuss what we can do to make it better, so that it would not happen again," Cherchesov said.
Fake citizenship and access to state secrets. Former Ukrainian officials get supreme posts in Crimea
More and more questions arise with regards to the staffing policy of the Crimean authorities. This summer, Roman Podsudevsky has been appointed in charge of the Yalta Commercial Port – a strategic objective. The former Ukrainian border guard officer wanted at home for divulgence of state secrets and corruption easily gained the Russian citizenship and made a successful career in Crimea. In March 2017, he was a senior security specialist in Genbank; in the same period, he attempted to become the Head of Shchelkino Municipal Administration but lost in the competition; and since December 2017, Podsudevsky became an aide to Sergei Aksenov. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how former Ukrainian enforcement officers and officials become supreme functionaries in Crimea.
