Description
The Executive Committee took today, a decision relating to the situation in Crimea. It is a delicate situation, as we all know. And in the recent weeks and months, we've had several discussions with the authorities in Ukraine and in Russia, with the football associations of Ukraine and Russia. The Executive Committee decided today to consider Crimea as a special zone until further notice. This means concretely that this area, this 'zone' will be supervised by a member of the Committee, Mr František Laurinec; that the three clubs currently playing in the Russian leagues from Crimea will have to stop playing in these competitions as of January 1 next year; and most importantly that UEFA has decided to help the financing of youth football in Crimea with some special projects which we will consider in further Committee meetings.
