    In our previous episode, we explained how the 2018 World Cup being hosted by Russia led to a massive international scandal and the downfall of several FIFA officials. Now we're taking an in-depth look at the corruption behind the World Cup and how Vladimir Putin has used the World Cup games, this international football tournament, to benefit his friends and make the rich even richer.

    In addition to this, on opening day of the games, Putin and the Russian government announced a plan to raise the retirement age for all men and women. This outraged many citizens and led to protests in 30 different cities on July 1st. Check out this episode and hear from journalist Oliver Bullough on the issues.

    For the people bashing about not criticizing British or America just take the chill pill.
    At 2:17, she mentioned Trump never releases his tax returns. Guys this is an channel called "Now this WORLD" serving mainly American audiences to know more about the rest of the world, outside of America.
