Russia 2018 World Cup budget 'final, no more cuts' - Sports Minister Mutko

The budget for Russia's 2018 World Cup is "final," according to the country's Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko.

Russia cut its budget for the 2018 World Cup in August -- in part by abandoning plans to build a new TV tower -- a trend of repeated cuts this year in line with a wide policy of reducing government spending.

The story is too old to be commented.
