Russia's Premier Dmitry Medvedev holds the cabinet meeting at the government headquarters in Moscow, Russia, Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015. Russia’s Sports Minister says the government will cut the budget for hosting the 2018 World Cup as part of plans to slash state expenditure while recession looms.  The Russian government is cutting its spending by 10 percent across the board after the central bank predicted last month that the economy could contract by up to 4.7 percent this year.
