Ukraine has not yet decided if it will continue to participate in UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying, Ukraine’s Deputy Sports Minister Matviy Bidney said on national television on April 14.
UEFA banned Russia from its tournaments but is allowing Belarus to participate in Euro 2024 qualifying, though in a different group than Ukraine.
"I think we still have enough time to adjust our positions. I know that they will compete in different groups and will not meet within the same event. We will see how it goes," Bidniy briefed the situation.
"I am sure that it is equally unacceptable to our players to go out on the same field, look into their eyes and shake hands with the aggressor," he said.
Ukraine’s national team started its attempt to qualify for Euro 2024 from Group C with a 2:0 loss to England on March 26.
Belarus has lost both of its Group I games.
