Kaliningrad, Volgograd and Yekaterinburg may not take part in FIFA World Cup 2018
Russia: Kaliningrad, Volgograd and Yekaterinburg may not take part in FIFA World Cup 2018
Such situation is very likely to take place and not only because of financial part.

Several Russian cities may lose their right to take part in FIFA World Cup 2018. Kaliningrad, Volgograd and Yekaterinburg are among them. At least two of these cities are very likely to suffer from such resolution. They are Kaliningrad and Volgograd.

This is not only due to financial part of the deal. One the one hand 15 billion rubles may not be enough to build stadiums in Kaliningrad ad Yekaterinburg. At the same time this is not so serious in comparison with the fact that Volgograd is absolutely unable to provide its visitors with descent public transport and hotel infrastructure. These factors also need huge investments and time.

Moreover we should note that stadium of Yekaterinburg is considered as the architectural monument. That is why local authorities need more funds in order to renew it and make it meet all necessary standards and requirements.  
There have been no resolutions concerning exclusion of these cities yet. The final decision will be made in September. This is the time when experts will be finished with overall evaluation of necessary finds to finish work on time.
