Sports news: Deputy Yuri Boyko commented on the ban on broadcasting the 2018 world Cup.
MP and co-chair of the “Opposition bloc” Yuriy Boyko voted against the ban on Ukraine broadcasts of the 2018 world Cup.
“I believe that the attempts of Pro-government forces to ban the broadcast of the world Cup in Russia are absolutely wrong. Came to Russia many teams from around the world.
And when, for example, will play a team of Brazil with Germany, why this game can not be shown? What is this obscurantism? We are categorically against the fact that people were restricted in this way.
When they say that five thousand Ukrainians who have bought tickets and will go to the world Cup, there will be dangerous, I want to remind you that there are 2.5 million people work and earn money. And last year almost $ 1 billion from them came to Ukraine”, – said Boyko on air of TV channel “Direct” .
