Ukrainian football teams will boycott all competitions featuring Russian sides.

This was revealed by their federation on Wednesday in response to UEFA re-admitting Russia’s youth team to international competition.

The UAF confirms that it will not take part in any competitions involving Russian teams, and also calls on other UEFA members to boycott matches against Russian teams.

Announcing their decision, UEFA argued that a generation of minors was being deprived of the right to compete, and that children should not be punished for the actions of adults.

However, Russian teams would not be able to play on Russian territory, and the country’s flag, anthem and national playing kit would be barred.

Ukraine has repeatedly called for blanket bans on Russia from international sporting events and has threatened to boycott the 2024 Paris Olympics if Russian and Belarusian athletes take part.
