Russia has decided to leave UEFA - media
On Tuesday, December 27, the Russian Football Union (RFU) will decide to leave Europe and move to Asia. In this way, representatives of the aggressor country hope to circumvent the suspension from international matches imposed on them after the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by the Russian army.
This is written by the Telegram channel "Football topics | Localov". According to him, the vote on December 27 is an empty formality, and the final decision to withdraw from the European Football Union (UEFA) has already been made. This, in particular, is confirmed by the fact that the Premier League clubs unanimously supported such a step.
This information was confirmed by journalist Sergei Yegorov on his Telegram channel "Football Bigi". At the same time, he emphasised that UEFA would not lose anything in terms of sporting benefits from Russia's transition to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). Earlier, Russia said that the European Union is against the withdrawal of a terrorist country from its membership.
It should be noted that UEFA has suspended Russian clubs from the Europa League, Champions League and Confederations League, and the national team from the qualifying tournament for the European Championship 2024 and the League of Nations.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, the president of the RFU, Alexander Dyukov, justified the country's transition to the AFC by new markets and the fact that "we ideologically differ from Europe."
