UK could boycott 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia

The United Kingdom could boycott this year's FIFA]. Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said this as quoted by Sky Sports.
According to the official, if it turns out that Russia is behind the recent murder of ex-GRU agent Sergei Skripal, 'it would be extremely difficult to imagine the British delegation at the World Cup, which is to be held in Russia.' 
The British Football Association added that Johnson's words concern the government officials, not the national football team. 

'Skripal - a former Russian agent convicted of spying for Britain - and his daughter were found slumped on a bench outside a shopping centre on Sunday afternoon', BBC wrote. 
Sergei Skripal, the ex-agent of Russian military intelligence (GRU) and his daughter Yuliya were found unconscious, lying on a bench not far from Maltings mall in Salisbury, Wiltshire, on March 5.
