Russia has Tank Biathlon.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tank_biathlon
Europe has Strong Europe Tank Challenge.
The competition takes place at the invitation of the United States Army in Europe and is held at the US military base in Grafenwöhr, southern Germany.
This year, eight nations participated in the competitions. Sweden, Germany, Austria, Poland, the US, France, Ukraine and the UK.
Sweden almost rammed ahead of Germany, but the German team scored points for best overall performance.

Russia's police stop publishing news about crimes and arrests for the duration of the World Cup.
https://newtimes.ru/articles/detail/166790/
The regional directorates of the Ministry of Internal Affairs stopped publishing news on crimes and detentions on their websites. Media sources said that agencies were instructed not to publish "negative" messages.
The press services should "suspend publishing of information about the results of operative-search and preventive measures" until July 25. According to Media Zone, the agencies have already stopped publishing daily reports on the state of crime in the regions. From 7 to 13 June, the websites of the press services of the regional directorates of the Ministry of Internal Affairs published 20 times less messages with the words "to detain", "reveal", "search" and "UK" than is usually published for such a period.

Blin!
A critically important court case about the limitations on free speech in Finland is unfolding in a Helsinki court this week.
Jessikka Aro, a well known Finnish journalist with the country’s national broadcaster YLE, has been the target of Finnish and Russian pro-Kremlin trolls after exposing the Kremlin’s social media troll factory in St. Petersburg in 2014.

Russia's state TV, Rossia 1:
The host, Vladimir Soloviev, interviews RT's editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan & points out with great pleasure that Trump—"the head of the democratic world"—never called RT or Sputnik "fake news," reserving that term for CNN, NY Times, Washington Post et al.
LOL:)

Meanwhile a Russian closet tour.
Ushanka? It is perhaps not the right season for that.

Swedish fans pilgrimage to Russia: "All to St. Petersburg"
After 3-0 against Mexico it was clear that Sweden won the group finals and will play the eighth finale in St. Petersburg, just over an hour by air from Stockholm.
- It's perfect with St. Petersburg. It is closer to Sweden, so I hope for a pilgrimage, "says Ola Toivonen.

Russian Journalists Fight Back Against Disinformation
https://euvsdisinfo.eu/russian-journalists-fight-back-against-disinformation/
Factory of Lies is the name of a new television documentary introducing a number of journalists who have uncovered the hidden processes of the disinformation campaigns coming from Russia.
Some of these journalists are themselves Russians who have not been afraid of doing this kind of investigative work in the difficult conditions of their country’s highly controlled media environment.
Factory of Lies premiered on 5 June and is a co-production between Danish and Swedish public service television (DR and STV), Israel’s Channel 8 and the Danish Film Institute.

Opa!
Si la Russie attaque l'Europe du Nord...
A bit Russophobic but...
https://www.lexpress.fr/actualite/monde/europe/si-la-russie-attaque-l-europe-du-nord_2023343.html
"Välkommen till Gotland!" ("Welcome to Gotland") The Gotlands Regemente soldiers will remember for a long time the warm welcome given by the natives on their return to this island of the Baltic Sea which is to Sweden what Corsica is to France: a popular tourist destination.

Do I have to remind that Crimea also is a popular tourist destination?

Here is a person responsible for pursuing the Kremlin's policy on @facebook .
Ulyana Zinina, Russian, works for @facebook as the Head of Public Policy at Russia, Ukraine and CIS states segments. Often she is appointed as a "Director for Interaction with Russian State Authorities". That is why so many Ukrainians are banned on the Facebook.

I saw the match and that incident on TV.
But I didn't know it was Pussy Riot.
That kind of manifestation doesn't serve any good purpose.
I think on the contrary. Wrong forum.
Kylian Mbappé however did a high-five...
