Re: “Stage set for foot­ball frenzy”, Sports, June 10.

Rus­sian Am­bas­sador to Thai­land Kir­ill Barsky has urged foot­ball fans na­tion­wide to en­joy the 2018 Fifa World Cup, which his coun­try is host­ing, not only for the sport­ing ex­cite­ment but also for the ex­cit­ing in­sights into his coun­try.

For­merly, I just wanted to cheer for my favourite na­tional team, but this in­vi­ta­tion in­spires me want to know about Rus­sia too.

I be­lieve this in­vi­ta­tion will also in­spire foot­ball fans in­ter­ested in know­ing about Rus­sia. This great fes­ti­val is a good op­por­tu­nity to present the story of Rus­sian arts, cul­ture, his­tory and so on.
