Dyukov complained about sanctions

Russian teams will not be returned to international soccer tournaments in the near future, but the situation will change over time. At the same time, the suspension of Russian representatives from competitions is illegal and has no grounds.

This was stated by the president of the Russian Football Union (RFU), Alexander Dyukov, in a commentary to the propaganda channel Match TV. The official complained about sanctions against the aggressor country and accused international federations of alleged double standards.
