As we reported earlier, in 2019, the Ukrainian national team did not go to XXIX World Winter Universiade 2019, which took place in Krasnoyarsk, Russia.

According to the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Ukraine, the reason was the absence of funding from the State Budget of Ukraine for preparation and participation. All the risks of athletes staying on the territory of the aggressor country were laying on the sports federations and the athletes themselves.
