Ukraine Bars Televising 2018 Russia World Cup

I can't blame Ukraine -- after all, Russia stole the Crimea incorporating sovereign land that belongs to Ukraine and now calling it part of Russia. In addition, Russia has been instrumental in causing trouble and trying to trigger a civil war in Ukraine through the supply of arms and militia.

Still, its the people of Ukraine who are now going to be denied the opportunity to watch the 2018 World Cup. Ukraine didn't make it into this World Cup. But, if they did, you can be assured their national team would have played and all the games would be televised back home.

So, is in in the end just a case of sour grapes?
