Premier League clubs to donate millions to Ukraine and cancel Russian TV broadcast rights
The Metro says Premier League clubs have agreed in principle to donate millions in humanitarian aid to beseiged Ukraine, and will cancel its deal with a Russian broadcaster for matches to be aired in the country.
The Eastern European country has been under attack from Russia since president Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of the country almost two weeks ago, with major cities decimated by bombing and over 1.5million forced to flee west into Poland, Romania and Moldova in order to escape the war.
Various international sporting organisations have been taking decisions to render Russia a pariah in the world of sport, with Putin’s deadly assault on the sovereignty of Ukraine across land, sea and air leading to cultural as well as financial sanctions.
