But ex-West Ham and Everton defender Bilic is confident of a successful tournament.
"Like every World Cup it's going to be better than the one before," added Bilic.
"With Russia, it's going to give them what they are still missing. They've got the money, they have the passion, they have a good league and the tradition, it's a huge country and they've got everything apart from good stadiums.
"They need to build new stadiums and they're going to do it for the World Cup. They're going to use that situation like Poland did (for the 2012 Euros) and I think it's going to be a great World Cup."
