On March 6, 1991, as a part of the USSR Football Federation, thanks to the efforts of Viktor Maksimovich Bannikov , the Football Federation of Ukraine was created and legally registered. She was completely controlled and subordinated to the Moscow leadership.
After the declaration of independence of Ukraine on August 24, 1991, the executive committee of the Football Federation of the Ukrainian SSR decided to hold a Plenum in early December, at which the fate of the development of national football would be determined.
In early September, a general meeting of the leadership of the federation and the football community was held. It was proposed to create internal football institutions that would not be subordinate to the Moscow leadership.
In October, Viktor Bannikov met with UEFA President Lennart Johansson , who promised full support for Ukraine’s entry into the European football community.
On December 13, in the large hall of the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Tourism, the Federation Council unanimously adopted the following statement:
|According to a nationwide referendum of December 1, 1991, Ukraine became an independent state. The Football Federation is an independent independent public organization that is not part of the federations of other states. The Federation takes under its jurisdiction the protection of the rights of football players, coaches and football specialists.|
The Football Federation is committed to adhering to international norms and human rights regardless of nationality or religion. The Football Federation reaffirms its commitment to the goals and principles of the FIFA and UEFA statutes and pledges to implement them.The Football Federation of Ukraine has fulfilled all its obligations to the Football Federation of the USSR and declares its withdrawal from its composition.
