Karpaty Lviv is in a location where there was an outbreak of coronavirus, due to financial problems not able to leave the transferred match of the 24th round of the Ukrainian Premier League in Mariupol (the distance from the city — about 1,300 km), which is to be held, according to the calendar, Wednesday, 1 July.
“Oleg Smalyuk (President of the club. — Ed.) for a long time was in Kiev and tried to meet with representatives and owners of the company “Krisal holdings” to buy out their share of the club or to agree on joint financing, — said the Executive Director of FC “Karpaty” Rostislav Asesin in comments to the official website of the club. — As far as I know, the meeting did not take place. Also the second party did not respond to an official letter from Oleg Smalyuk with identical sentences. It is no secret that the club was long-lasting financial difficulties, we survived the year without funding. Now Karpaty literally do not own resources and reserves to continue life, all possible options are exhausted. Required substantial subsidies, because of the quarantine force majeure in no way impossible to provide in the formation, and so stripped-down and modest budget. After a change of ownership of the company “Mendel limited” Oleg Smalyuk came to the city and promptly closed a number of problematic issues. Now debt to the team, and moreover, players were given financial incentives for their character in the Lviv Derby. However, after a lack of dialogue with the company “Krisal holding” Oleg Smalyuk told me that he has the ability to Fund the club on their 50%, because it is a simple businessman and not an oligarch. Accordingly, until we have the opportunity to travel to the game in Mariupol. I really hope that the representatives of the “Krisal holdings” will finally pay attention to our problem and will engage in constructive negotiation process“.
Note that in the 28th round of the “Karpaty” in Lutsk played a draw against Lviv — 1:1. It was the first match in Lviv after the resumption of the Ukrainian championship, which was suspended due to a pandemic coronavirus.
