Ukraine plans to resume competitive football in the country in August, despite being attacked by Russia after President Vladimir Zelensky gave its approval.
The President of the Football Federation of Ukraine Andriy Pavelko told the Associated Press the details of his talks with Zelensky and the leaders of FIFA and UEFA on finding a safe way to hold men’s and women’s matches in his native land.
Ukraine was forced to abandon its league in February when Russia launched an invasion that, according to Zelensky, resulted in the deaths of “at least tens of thousands” of Ukrainian civilians and the fact that many parts of many cities and towns were destroyed.
But as Russian troops were shifted east and south, fighting subsided in the area near the capital Kyiv and elsewhere. There is optimism that the sport could recover to lift the spirits of a nation trying to qualify for the World Cup on Sunday by winning in Wales.
“I spoke with our President Vladimir Zelensky about the importance of football to distract attention,” Pavelko said in an interview with AP, surrounded by a Ukrainian T-shirt and a tactical board in the team’s training hall in Cardiff. “From children to the elderly, everyone is focused on war. Every day they receive information about the deaths, the consequences of the war.
“We talked about the fact that football has a lot of power to help people think about the future, because now people are certainly not in a good mood. They are in the worst mood. We talked about how it is possible for football to help us think about the future. “
This is the future with players who will be able to return to the field in Ukraine to provide uplifting sporting moments of joy.
“That’s why the president and I decided to resume the Ukrainian championship in August,” Pavelko said through an interpreter. “In Ukraine we will play at all levels. So are the Premier League, and the first and second professional divisions, and the women’s championship.
“At all levels we will start in August. The decision was made with the President of Ukraine. “
Pavelka met with Zelensky before leaving Ukraine for Glasgow to see the World Cup semifinal victory over Scotland on Wednesday. Pavelko then visited FIFA President Gianni Infantino in Paris and UEFA President Alexander Cheferin in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
“I told them that we are resuming the wartime championships in Ukraine … under the bombs, and we are counting on their support,” Pavelko said. “We are discussing the details.”
The government has banned men between the ages of 18 and 60 from leaving Ukraine to keep them available for military service, although footballers have been allowed to play abroad and Pavelko has flown to key meetings. But last month he conducted a live broadcast of the UEFA Congress in Vienna via his phone from a stadium in Chernihiv that had been attacked by Russia to show the damage.
It is unclear which parts of the country will be used for league matches.
“We will talk to our military government and the government to discuss how to organize it safely,” Pavelko added.
Shakhtar Donetsk was leading the table when the season was suspended in February and then officially announced in April, giving it a place in the lucrative Champions League group stage next season.
Shakhtar has been living in uncertainty in exile for eight years. The team has not played in Donetsk since 2014, when it was expelled due to the Russian-backed conflict in its native region of eastern Ukraine, which remains the scene of intense fighting.
