During the 25 days of World Cup, 12 Ukrainian soldiers were killed and 50 wounded. 70 Ukrainian political prisoners, including film director Oleg Sentsov, are still in Russian jails. One of the stadiums is less than 150 km from occupied territories and an undeclared war zone.
While watching the World Cup final, think about how the attention needed towards preventing the torture of these prisoners, has been re-directed and covered up by a sporting event.
