Syria Civil War


The unrest in Syria began during the Arab Spring in early 2011. Since the early protests against President Bashar al-Assad and his government the situation turned into an ongoing multisided armed conflict.


The United Nations estimate that more than 100,000 people have been killed and millions displaced. While the UNHCR counted approximately 500,000 registered Syrian refugees in January 2013 figures reached more than 4,6 million three years later. The humanitarian situation inside the country keeps deteriorating as in Aleppo, Madaya and other besieged areas about 400,000 people are searching for aid according to UNHCR estimates.

FIFA World Cup 2018 Russia

The soccer world championship takes place from 14 June to 15 July 2018 in Russia for the first time. Defending champion Germany and host nation Russia participate together with 30 national teams in the final tournament. A total of 64 matches are played in eleven cities across the Russian Federation with the final being played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. The match procedure will be supported by the goal-line technology, which is being used for the first time at a FIFA World Cup.


During a convention in Zürich on 2 December 2010 the twenty-two-member FIFA Executive Committee voted for Russia as host of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Following this decision, criticism and allegations of bribery on the part of the Russian team and corruption from FIFA members were voiced.
