"I personally and the leadership of the Football Federation decided to compensate Ognen Vukojevic for the fine that was imposed on him. And if it is resolved in the issue of employment, offer him a position in the FFU. Now we are studying the legal side of the decision on Ognen Vukojevic, appeals on this decision. We will provide full legal and financial assistance in these matters, "said Pavelko.
For one day, Ukrainians "destroyed" the FIFA page on Facebook. The rating of the organization fell from 5 stars to 1.5. In addition, all these assessments were accompanied by the signatures "Glory to Ukraine". A total of about 150,000 users rated the page as negative.
