  1. The biggest human rights abusers are the USA, and EU. How many people across the world have been killed because of the invasions by the USA and EU. Who called upon the invasion of Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq. Where the countries involved sanctioned or they are the one that are imposing sanctions on other countries as if all well with them. Ukraine seems to be a cry baby requesting for assistance in almost everything. They want money to be paid to them, they want weapons. Now they are requesting for the banning of anyone who is of a different view. They can as well do away with the world cup and concentrate on the UEFA matches. The rest of the sane world can then group and play their own world cup.

    1. Sports is not a political issue that Ukraine can ask to exclude Iran from the World Cup. The biggest violators of human rights are the United States of America and Israel, and their supporters are the European Union
