On Thursday, May 9, the President of the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine Vadym Huttsait and the President of the Ukrainian Volleyball Federation (UVU) Mykhailo Melnyk met at the Olympic House to discuss the issue of representing the Ukrainian national volleyball team in the official international competitions. Some players avoid playing for the Ukrainian national team and prefer to participate in competitions as part of private clubs.

Representing Ukraine at international competitions and wearing the blue and yellow colors on their uniforms is an honor and a privilege for every Ukrainian athlete.

A member of the Ukrainian national team embodies the best features of the nation: freedom, strength, and dignity. Especially when Ukraine is facing full-scale Russian aggression.

"The National Olympic Committee of Ukraine and the Volleyball Federation of Ukraine consider the position of the athletes unacceptable, as the priority is to play for the national team of Ukraine," the NOC said in a statement on Facebook.
