Due to the war in the Middle East, the clubs could not agree on a match in the Conference League.

Due to the fighting that has been going on in Israel in recent days, the local Maccabi Tel Aviv – rival of Lugansk Zari in the Conference League – asked to postpone the head-to-head match against the Ukrainian team to another date.

Zarya he replied that he did not want to postpone the match due to the difficult schedule of the match.

“Luganskaya Zarya treated with understanding the situation developed in Israel. That is, with war and terrorist actions on the territory of the country and with everything that leads to the death of people,” the residents of Luhansk began their statement.

However, despite everything, it should be remembered that the war in the territory of our country has been going on for almost 10 years. During this time, our people, our fans and our team have been through a lot. I had to leave my own homes, start life again and fight. During this period, despite the difficult times, Luhansk Zarya he never asked for the postponement of at least the European Cup matches, and plays football despite everything. Even today, when our team travels to many places by bus, crosses borders for 15-20 hours, and then plays in one country, after that it returns to Ukraine again for the same 20 time and takes part in its own championship.

Zarya offered to exchange matches at home Maccabi or help your opponent fix their home match at the Lublin Arena. Zarya generally not opposed to playing an opponent’s home match in any country where the home team chooses. But Maccabi wants to postpone the match, scheduled for October 26, to the month of November.

In November, black and white have a very complicated calendar. In addition to the matches in the European Cup, we will have a match in the Ukrainian Cup (in Odessa) and in our own championship.

Considering the very difficult logistics, not forgetting that Ukraine is also a country that continues the war and its struggle for independence, that does not want to neglect domestic competitions (Ukrainian Cup and Championship), any postponement of the against is not acceptable for Zari.

We are ready to play football and ready to play, following the regulations and calendar of UEFA competitions and the domestic championship,” said a statement on Zarya’s website.

It is worth adding that recently Zarya agreed to postpone the fight against Shakhtar at the request of the coaching staff of the national team of Ukraine.

We reminded you earlier Zarya won their first away game in European competition in two years.
