It is worth noting that the Ukrainian team is ranked higher than the English Championship winner Burnley, which is sixth.

Polissia is the leader of the Ukrainian First League. A victory over Kremin in the next match will secure the team's place in the top tier of Ukrainian football for the 2023/2024 season ahead of schedule.

Earlier, NV reported that Russian looters were selling the Zorya Cup, which was won by Zorya Luhansk for winning the First League.
