Minister of Youth and Sports of Ukraine Vadim Gutzeit for the first time commented on the scandalous episode, saying that the cries of Fenerbahce fans at the match with Dynamo were of a psychological nature. Turkish fans tried to put pressure on our players to make them make mistakes.
Gutzeit also added that today sports and politics are closely intertwined.
“It was psychological pressure on our players to make mistakes somewhere. But our players and the coaching staff did everything for Dynamo to win this confrontation.
The Olympic Charter says that sport is out of politics. But not now, when the Russian Federation went to war with Ukraine. And we see them killing women and children, torturing people, destroying everything they see. Therefore, now sport is 100% in politics,” Gutzeit said in an interview. TV channel “Rada”.
