Ukrainian parliament rejects ban on 2018 World Cup broadcasts

Ukrainian parliament rejects ban on 2018 World Cup broadcasts
Members of the Ukrainian parliament, Verkhovna Rada, have turned down a proposal to ban broadcasts of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, a lawmaker from the "Opposition bloc" party has told TASS.

"Rada stood united on the issue of banning 2018 World Cup broadcasts from Russia, and refused to include a relevant document in its agenda," lawmaker Yuri Pavlenko said on Thursday.

"This will enable Ukrainian citizens to watch their favorite teams compete in one of this year’s most important sporting events. An attempt by the party of warmongers to use football in fuelling military hysteria in the country has failed," he went on.
