The "LPR" promised that Zarya would soon return to the elite of Russian soccer," receiving a response online
The so-called head of the Luhansk "LPR" soccer union, Yuriy Malyhin, is sure that the Zarya soccer club will become a participant in Russian tournaments. According to the "soccer official," they are not going to do as in Donetsk and create a new club from scratch.
"We have an academy, the guys represent the "republic" in the championship of Rostov with dignity. For now we are aiming for a unified championship, but in the long term nothing can be ruled out. But I am sure that in time Zarya will return to the elite of Russian soccer," Malygin said in an interview with Russian propagandists from R-Sport.
Fans from Russia ridiculed such a passage by Malygin. Viewers note that Zarya has never been a competitor in Russia, so it can't go back there.
"Dude confuses the USSR with current realities. When was Zarya in the elite? Guys, who knows, tell me. Thank you in advance," the users quipped.
Fans are asking Malygin what "united championship" he is talking about if the "LPR" was "accepted" into Russia last year.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, earlier Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko instructed to ensure the participation of Shakhtar from "DPR" in RFU tournaments and became a laughing stock on the network.
