A strong wind toppled down the letters of inscription ‘Russia-2018’, designed for the FIFA World Cup 2018 and installed on Victory Square in the heart of Kaliningrad city. The hurricane toppled the capital letter ‘R’ and small letters ‘si’, leaving ‘usa.’

Some users of social networks spotted the ‘irony’ in nature, because due to eruption of corruption scandal, the right of Russia to hold the football championship may be handed over to the United States, which also applied for the tournament.
