Vladimir Leonov, who is currently in charge of the sports ministry of Russia, is supremely confident that his country will be able to organize the soccer World Cup peacefully.
The supporters of the other countries especially that of England are understood to be feeling very reluctant to travel to Russia because of what the Russian supporters had done during the Euros.
But, Leonov doesn’t think that the reputation of the general Russian fans can be set on the basis of that particular incident. He reckons it was a single incident of its kind and there were only a few people involved in that.
