Russian president Vladimir Putin met FIFA president Gianni Infantino in the Kremlin on Monday to discuss preparations for the 2018 World Cup.
Putin had been scheduled to host Infantino at his residence in Sochi but he stayed in the capital following Sunday's plane crash near Moscow which killed all 71 people on board.
Russian news agencies say Infantino offered his condolences to Putin over the weekend's tragedy.
