The Union of European Football Associations will discuss the radical proposals on Tuesday, March 17. According to sources in the UEFA, since all of Europe is now in sports isolation, the course of the international tournament will be discussed at an emergency meeting.

It is also known that UEFA has already decided to suspend matches of tournaments such as the Champions League and the Europa League. The reason for this decision was the pandemic of the coronavirus Covid-19.

Three days after that, Ukraine closed regular flights with other countries. Cargo checkpoints in airports, railroads, seaports and roadways will continue to operate.
