The President of the UAF protests against the new membership of the NOC

President of the Ukrainian Football Association Andrey Pavelko commented on the election results of the new President and members of the NOC of Ukraineand also announced the suspension of its cooperation with the NOC.

“The results of yesterday’s XXXVIІ General Assembly of the NOC of Ukraine caused a huge resonance in society. Which is absolutely natural, given the election of representatives of the OPPL party, banned in Ukraine, as members of the NOC.”

“While the whole world is boycotting the participation of Russian athletes in competitions of all levels, people from pro-Russian political groups are included in the Ukrainian Olympic Committee. I personally voted against the relevant decisions.”

“Therefore, as a member of the Assembly and a representative of the NOC team, I am suspending my membership in the Committee until the situation is corrected.”

“Thousands of our soldiers are not sacrificing their lives so that the scandalous friends of Russia continue to lobby here for their own and our enemy’s interests.”

Earlier, Andriy Shevchenko resigned from the position of vice-president of the NOC of Ukraine.

Recall that yesterday Vadim Gutzeit became the new president of the NOC. Also yesterday, a new composition of members of the NOC of Ukraine was elected. Among them were Grigory Surkis and Nestor Shufrich.
