I tried reading this article. I cannot make any sense of it at all. Please explain what the hell this article is trying to say.

The way I read it, FIFA is saying the UAF doesn't have a way to remove the current president of the UAF, no matter what his transgressions were, and that holding a special meeting to do so has to be in person, not virtual, despite there being a war on.

So essentially the UAF wants to remove a corrupt executive, but FIFA says no can do. I'll leave the irony of that to the readers imagination.

Sounds like the Ukraine security services are siphoning funds from the football federation? Confusing AF. Feel bad though for these journalists that have to make sense of international football scandals.

I'm not sure what the truth of it is, but there's a lot of money involved.

I THOUGHT that is what the article said, but that seems like it was translated 2-3 times before it made it to English.

It seems The gadgy in charge of Ukrainian FA has been dipping his hand into funds supposed to be supporting those affected by the war and has got caught.

FIFA want to suspend them because of it and the Ukrainians are trying to replace him with shevchenko so they don’t get suspended but the original gadgy is saying it’s a Russian plot rather than just stepping down hence causing the problem.

What's that Fifa doesn't want a corrupt executive removed? I'm shocked lol

TLDR: Ukraine football boss misused funds and they want to replace him with a legend , but FIFA is worried that the Russian and Ukraine government may have influence in the football federations “election”. So fifa has the option to suspend them from international football for a bit.

Perhaps some Russian checks have cleared in FIFA accounts?

Just when you think FIFA can't go lower...they go lower.

Terrible title. FIFA can’t ban Ukraine from playing not a sport.
