A new dossier handed to Parliament by the Sunday Times suggests that Russian officials may have presented UEFA Michel Platini with a Picasso painting in exchange for his support for their 2018 World Cup bid.
The report has been published by the House of Commons Culture Media and Sport select committee, with various suggestions of misconduct by Russia, Qatar and England.
Among the most serious of the allegations includes the extravagant gift offered to Platini, and claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin, who watched the 2014 World Cup final with Sepp Blatter, enlisted FIFA's President to help lobby for votes.
Platini voted for Russia and Qatar to host the 2018 and 2022 tournaments, reiterating his support in September 2014 by suggesting it was "the right decision" to award the World Cup to the two unfancied nations.
Russia head coach Fabio Capello insists he is not thinking about salary issues before his side's Euro 2016 qualifying opener against Liechtenstein on Monday.
It's been reported that Capello, whose team had a disappointing World Cup campaign in Brazil, is owed outstanding wages by the Russian Football Union stretching back over the last three months.
Capello - as quoted by sport-express.ru - said: "In the case of all rumours about my contract and about money, I am not thinking about it because the financial issue is what I care about the least.
"All my thoughts are about football, about the upcoming match with Liechtenstein."
Head coach Fabio Capello has committed his future to the Russian national team until the end of the 2018 World Cup.
The 67-year-old Italian replaced Dick Advocaat in the role in July 2012 and supervised qualification for the 2014 World Cup finals as Russia finished top of Group F, one point ahead of Portugal.

Russia only needed a point to qualify for the World Cup at Azerbaijan last night and they wound the clock down by sending fans into a trance with this repetitive sequence of passing.
Toni Duggan's injury-time goal gave England a lifeline in the UEFA Women's Euro Championship following a draw against Russia in Linkoping, Sweden.
Duggan struck deep in added-time to cancel out Nelli Korovkina's first-half strike. England's hopes of emerging from Group C still hang by a thread.
Lokomotiv Moscow have parted company with coach Slaven Bilic and named Leonid Kuchuk as his replacement.
Former Croatia, Everton and West Ham boss Bilic, 44, took charge of Lokomotiv last summer but could only guide the club to a ninth-placed finish in the 16-team Russian Premier League.
