British media overdid it with the promotion of a negative image of Russia before the start of the world Cup. Wrote about this in his column the Guardian journalist Shaun Walker.
“The British press was wrong? Perhaps that is a bit distorted. Came to Russia fans impressed by the positive atmosphere: street party, a surprisingly small number of police, radulenii reception from the majority of Russians, hot weather and cheap beer,” admitted Walker.
1 Jul English fan Matt Maybury returned from taking place in Russia of the world Cup and criticized the British media. “Came back alive after two weeks in Russia. At me did not attack the bloodthirsty bullies, not eaten by a bear, I was not poisoned and not killed. The British media should be ashamed of the obvious propaganda against the Russians. Absolutely a great country,” he wrote on Twitter.
27 June British journalist ENDA Brady shared his impressions of the organization of the world Cup. He noticed that all the fears about the Russian hooligans, widespread in the UK, were in vain. “You want the truth? I feel safer here than in London,” said Brady.
