UAF officially approves football slogans 'Glory to Ukraine!' and 'Glory to the Heroes!'.

The executive committee of the Ukrainian Association of Football (UAF) has approved the official football status of the slogans "Glory to Ukraine!" and "Glory to the Heroes!"

UAF President Andriy Pavelko wrote this on his Facebook page.

"The UAF's executive committee has just supported my proposal and approved the football symbols of Ukraine. Forty-five members unanimously voted for the decision. From now on, together with the small UAF emblem in the form of a Trident with the inscription 'Ukraine,' a large emblem – a map of Ukraine with a Trident in the center – can be used at all official UAF events, events with the participation of UAF representatives on the international stage and national team matches," he said.

According to Pavelko, the executive committee also approved the official football status of the slogans "Glory to Ukraine!" and "Glory to the Heroes!" which have been a greeting to millions of Ukrainian fans in Ukraine and around the world for many years.

"In all matches of our national teams, this unique national football code, which contains these attributes, has united all Ukrainians from different regions of Ukraine and our compatriots from different countries and continents. We are obliged and honored to preserve it and fill it with new strength of unity! Congratulations to the entire football community of Ukraine on this historic decision!" Pavelko said.

Earlier reports said that Pavelko was holding talks with UEFA representatives in Rome regarding permission to place the slogan "Glory to the Heroes!" on the national team kit.

Ukraine earlier unveiled the new national team jersey emblazoned with a map of Ukraine, including Russian-occupied Crimea, and the inscriptions "Glory to Ukraine!" and "Glory to the Heroes!"

Russian State Duma deputies called on UEFA to ban the use of this kit at Euro 2020.

UEFA said later that the kit had been designed in accordance with the requirements of the organization and without any violations.

Media reported on June 10 that UEFA had ordered Ukraine to remove the slogan "Glory to the Heroes!" from the national team kit following complaints from the Russian Football Union.
