Shakhtar President Rinat Akhmetov has promised that the miners will arrive in Mariupol, to give fans a great football festival.

The President of Shakhtar Donetsk Rinat Akhmetov commented on the absence of Dynamo Kiev at the match in Mariupol.

“As I assess the actions of the Dynamo? I think this question is not for me. Why they do so, it would be right to ask the management of the Dynamo or of the President of the club. I do not comment.

But I want to assure all of our fans: Shakhtar is waiting for this match and will definitely come to Mariupol, to give our countrymen a great football festival. If you ask, is it dangerous for players to play in Mariupol, I’ll ask you in return: for the half-million population of the city is not dangerous to live there? This peaceful people. And if they be in the city is not dangerous, that means our players have nothing to fear” – quoted Akhmetov’s TV channel Football 1.
We will note, earlier the captain of Shakhtar Darijo Srna said that the Donetsk club respects the rules and arrive at the match in Mariupol.
