An emergency meeting in UEFA tomorrow to discuss the transfer of the Champions League final from Russia

 The European Union, “UEFA”, issued an official statement a while ago, to resolve the transfer of the 2022 Champions League final from St. Petersburg after the Russian war on Ukraine in the past hours.

“Following the development of the situation between Russia and Ukraine, the UEFA President has called an extraordinary meeting of the Executive Committee at 10:00 CET tomorrow, Friday 25 February, in order to assess the situation and take all necessary decisions,” UEFA said in its statement.

For its part, the European Football Association (UEFA) is choosing between two options in order to host the 2022 Champions League final, instead of St. Petersburg, against the backdrop of the war that Russia launched against Ukraine during the past hours.

The British newspaper, “Daily Star”, reported that UEFA is choosing between 3 stadiums in England to host the Champions League final instead of St Petersburg in Russia, which are Wembley Stadium, London Olympic Stadium and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Russian President Vladimir Putin had announced the start of a military operation in the Donbass region in eastern Ukraine, whose independence Russia recognized two days ago and concluded with its leaders a charity agreement, coinciding with the start of the military ground movement in Ukrainian cities during the past few hours.

Putin said that his country does not intend to occupy Ukraine, but rather to protect the Donbass region, which includes the republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, warning against any external interference in Ukraine and at the same time calling on the Ukrainian army to lay down its arms.
