The head of Ukraine’s football federation, Andriy Pavelko, told The Media regarding his discussions with Zelenskyy and the chiefs of FIFA and UEFA about finding a safe manner to have men’s and women’s games on nation’s ground.

However, as Russian forces have been reassigned to the east and south, combat in and around Kyiv has lessened. There is hope that sport will return to improve the nation’s morale as it attempts to qualify for the World Cup by defeating Wales away on Sunday.

“I have spoken to our president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, about how essential football is to distraction,” Pavelko told the Associated Press in a team conference room in Cardiff. It was encircled by the Ukraine shirts and a tactics board.

“From infants to the elderly, everyone is preoccupied with the battle.” They gather notification on casualties. And the effects of the war on a daily basis.”

Shakhtar Donetsk led the standings when the season was stopped in February. And afterwards officially announced over in April. Earning it a spot in the prestigious Champions League group phase following season.

Shakhtar is in exile for eight years, living with instability. The squad really hasn’t performed in Donetsk since 2014. While it was pushed out due to a Russian-backed war in its native area of eastern Ukraine. It is still raging.
