UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin remains firm on Russia

Aleksander Ceferin (UEFA President): “It’s not a decision today. The decision for the Russian national team and clubs on their suspension was a decision until further notice. This means that we are monitoring the situation and, until we decide otherwise, this decision will stand. So we don’t have to make a decision every time another competition comes up.

We all hope that the war will end as soon as possible so that the national team can participate in our competition. But given the situation, as it is, we can’t even discuss it. It’s a mixture of politics and sport. I can’t say anything and decide on the fact that if an agreement is signed, they will be able to compete. What we can do is advocate for peace, and we hope the war will end soon, after which we will decide what to do. »
