Mitrofanov speaks about UEFA

The Secretary General of the Russian Football Union (RFU), Maxim Mitrofanov, confirmed that we should not expect teams from the Russian Federation to return to international tournaments. The official from the aggressor country repeated the traditional narratives of Kremlin propaganda about the alleged politicization of sports, which led to the suspension.

Mitrofanov said this in an interview with the RB Sport portal. The Vladimir Putin regime's henchman noted that the Russian Federation maintains a dialogue with the leadership of the European Football Union (UEFA) regarding the inclusion of Russians in the qualifying round of one of the next major tournaments.

"I would like to see us back in the European competition tomorrow, but this is impossible. I expect UEFA to make this decision as soon as possible. No matter what year I am counting on, we have to proceed from when UEFA makes this decision. Our conversation with them is based on the subject: "Colleagues, please allow us to participate in the next reasonable selection cycle." We can no longer qualify for the European Championships in 2024 for sporting reasons - this is logical. Then new competitions will start, to which we want to be admitted. This is our goal. We want to qualify for every upcoming competition," Mitrofanov said.

Earlier, he was outraged that UEFA did not exclude teams from Israel from its tournaments, hypocritically calling it double standards.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, the Russian national football team played a match with the European national team for the first time in two and a half years, causing ridicule online.
