OP reacted to FIFA’s ban on Zelenskyi’s speech before the 2022 World Cup final

It is reported CNN.

“FIFA has lost a valuable understanding of football – as a game that unites peoples and does not support differences. There is nothing in the president’s address that gives a political color to a sports event, namely subjective assessments, political signals and even more accusations. FIFA there is still time to correct its mistake. FIFA should not be afraid that the words of peace will be heard at the world football holiday, which represents peace,” the President’s Office said.

According to the American publication, the Qatari authorities agreed to show Zelensky’s appeal for peace, but the initiative was blocked by the International Federation of Football Associations, which called the video political.

CNN obtained Zelensky’s speech recorded on the eve of the final. In the clip, the President of Ukraine says that football is meant to unite the world and calls for “a championship of peace, not a world war.”

In addition, the president’s address has already been made public by Ukrainian football players on social networks.
