The World Cup's Grand Opening, in Photos

The World Cup has officially begun in Russia, with an opening concert by British pop star Robbie Williams, and an exciting win by the Russian team against Saudi Arabia with a score of 5-0.

Russia media is under attack.

At least 10 independent media outlets have been blocked or closed down over their coverage of the war in Ukraine.
