The Ukraine prevented the holding of a football match with a team from the occupied Crimea in Turkey

Украина помешала проведению футбольного матча с командой из оккупированного Крыма в Турции

Turkey has canceled a friendly match between “Istanbulspor” and a representative of the championship of the Crimea “Tashan”.

This was announced by the head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov.

He noted that the Russian invaders with the help of sports competitions by hook or by crook tried to present to the world a breakthrough in the alleged international isolation of the occupied Crimea.

“The match in Istanbul, such a welcome to Russian invaders, will not take place! A special thanks to all who gave to make a sneaky plan of Russian invaders: the staff of the Embassy of Ukraine in Turkey, the Ministry of youth and sports of Ukraine, the leadership of the football Federation of Ukraine, the staff of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people. The interaction was absolute,” wrote Chubarov.

By the way, the match was scheduled for March 27 in Istanbul.

Instead, the match will be held a press-conference of organizers of a friendly match.
