Athletistic / Football. The most famous Russian football referee of our time, Sergei Karasev, said that in 2024, UEFA representatives have not contacted him. Over the past two and a half years, he has stopped working matches under the auspices of the organization.

“In 2024, UEFA has not been contacted. Is there an agreement on the meeting of UEFA judges this fall? No, it’s silence, I don’t know anything,” Karasev quotes .

Before the start of SVO in Ukraine, Sergei Karasev was part of the elite group of UEFA referees. The Russian referee at Euro 2020 was a reserve referee for the semi-final between England and Denmark (2:1 dv) and also worked in the UEFA Super Cup match. After the start of military training of Russian armed forces in Ukraine, FIFA and UEFA stopped appointing Russian referees for international matches, citing logistical problems.
