“The war continues in Ukraine, and we do not know when it will end. But for us it is already clear that Ukraine will not have the opportunity to hold a full-fledged championship this season. Fortunately, there are clubs that are ready to play and the importance of their presence in international competitions is invaluable. Ukrainian basketball must live,” Mikhail Brodsky said.
