The Verkhovna Rada is working on the address to FIFA; the bill No.4681 is already submitted for consideration. The text so far has not been available.

Earlier, FIFA said the 2018 World Cup in Russia would not be boycotted, even despite the Kremlin’s military aggression against Ukraine. The Association insisted on its principal position that “politics and sport do not mix”.

Previously, FIFA already found itself in an awkward situation, when it approved the promotion video for the 2018 World Cup. It featured the map posing Crimea as part of Russia. Soon after that, the video was deleted from the Web, and FIFA officially apologized to Ukraine for the incident.
