FIFA and the world: No World Cup 2018, in "Kaliningrad", a city renamed by murderers to «honour» the murderer.

      Rustam Vasiliev

      Königsberg, Russian Federation

We appeal to FIFA to cancel their decision on holding the World Cup 2018 in "Kaliningrad", a city which was stripped of its original named Königsberg by Stalin in 1946 to "honour" Mikhail Kalinin.
As Chairman of Presidium (nominal Head of State) of the Soviet Union, Kalinin was responsible for heinous international crimes against humanity. Kalinin’s signature appears clearly on many documents ordering mass killings, repression and terror (see links below).
Kalinin legalized killing children from the age 12. The Butovo firing range mass grave is only one of the many sources of physical proof of that barbaric child-killing law. Kalinin also signed documents for the murder of an estimated 22,000 Poles in the Katyn massacre. Kalinin`s "law of three spikelets", led to the famine ( Holodomor) in the Ukraine.
Hosting the World Cup in "Kaliningrad" is as absurd as holding the World Cup in “Himmlerburg” or “Goebbelsville”.
FIFA’s current choice of city is effectively smearing out the world community in the blood of the innocent victims of the butcher Kalinin. It is certainly not in the spirit of the World Cup to host the event in a city immortalizing an international criminal such as Mikhail Kalinin.
We find it unacceptable to our moral and ethical principles that the World Cup will be held in "Kaliningrad", a city renamed after a mass murderer.
We are, however, fully in favour of the World Cup 2018 being held in Königsberg.
Just as Volgograd has been stripped of the stigma of mass-murderer Stalin, and the ancient city of Tver (known as “Kalinin” from 1931-1990) has had its original name restored, we request FIFA to require the Russian government to restore the name of Königsberg before the city is allowed to host an international event of the stature of the FIFA World Cup. It would also, of course, be a very opportune moment for the Kremlin to do so.

Just some of the documents illustrating the brutality of Mikhail Kalinin.


The Soviet law for execution of children approved by Kalinin.

The Katyn massacre is a mass execution of Polish nationals carried out by NKVD, the Soviet secret police, in April and May 1940. This official secret ( not any more) document was approved and signed by the Soviet Politburo, including Mikhail Kalinin. The number of victims is estimated up to 22,000.
