FIFA asks Russia and Ukraine for a ceasefire during the World Cup

It was the President of the World Football Federation, Gianni Infantino, who called on Russia and Ukraine for a month-long ceasefire.

The head of FIFA spoke during the G-20 summit.

"My plea to all of you is to hold a ceasefire for a month, as long as the World Cup lasts. You are the world leaders. You have the ability to influence the course of history," Infantino said in Bali, Indonesia.

The World Cup will start on Sunday (November 20).
