The Russian-Ukrainian conflict affects Arsenal in the European league


The European Football Association (UEFA) has decided to transfer the match between Arsenal and Ukraine's Ursula Poltava to Kiev for security reasons in the European League on Thursday.

After the introduction of warfare in certain parts of Ukraine, the European Union decided to transfer the game after the latest tension between Russia and Ukraine after seizure of three Ukrainian ships off the Crimean coast.

About 500 London fans are expected to travel to Kiev 350 kilometers from Poltava.

The distance between the two cities is about three and a half hours by train, a long and difficult distance for the crowds who traveled far from London to Ukraine.

The Olympic Stadium will host a meeting on Thursday, with Arsenal wanting to win his 18-player winning line.

Arsenal is expected to lead a lot in Kiev due to cold weather, where the country is experiencing a severe snowstorm.

German midfielder Massoud Ozil can participate initially after losing 2-1 to Bournemouth in the league on Sunday.

Arsenal has already qualified for the next group in Group E and looks forward to winning to be the top of the group.
