For Daniil, this is the first victory in the Grand Slam tournaments. He became the third Russian in history to win a tournament of this level. The Russian national team won the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup held at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow (August 19-29). Beach soccer has become a very interesting phenomenon in Russia, which is a much less "beachy" country compared to such leaders of beach soccer as Brazil and Portugal.

Hamma001 asks: I will study in Ryazan. Will 107 USD monthly suffice? I will live in a dorm
Expert's answer:
As of 2021, 107 USD is about 8,000 Rubles. Most working people in Ryazan earn in the range of about 20,000-40,000 Rubles per month. With 8,000 Rubles per month, you will be able to buy only basic food to cook it yourself and that's all. So you need to have at least 200 USD a month, and preferably 300-400 USD for a more or less normal life.
