NEED FOR SPEED: With Russia's World Cup just four years away, several arenas planned to be constructed for the tournament are still in early preparatory stages. According to earlier reports, the federal government considers earmarking 100B rubles ($2.89B) for the construction of new football stadiums in Samara, Volgograd, Yekaterinburg, Nizhni Novgorod, Saransk and Rostov-on-Don. Decisions regarding the releasing of funds and project inspections are expected shortly.
