Ukrinform
President of the Ukrainian Association of Football Andriy Pavelko has promised to play the matches of the Ukrainian Premier League and the Ukrainian Cup, which have been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He wrote this on his Facebook page, while commenting on the UEFA Executive Committee's decision.

"The Premier League and the Ukrainian Cup should be played just like all matches of the championships of other European associations should be played. This was the position of the UEFA Executive Committee. The winners of national club competitions and participants in European competitions from Ukraine will be determined on the basis of sporting merit - this is the number one priority! Only the extension by the government of the decision on the impossibility of holding football competitions or insurmountable economic difficulties can obstruct the completion of the Ukrainian Premier League and the Ukrainian Cup," Pavelko wrote.
