Due to Russia’s invasion, Ukraine’s top-flight football league came to an end, with no winner.

Due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Premier League (UPL) season has come to an end with no champions.

Remember that no matches have been played since Russia invaded Ukraine in February as part of a’special military operation,’ according to Moscow.

Before the league’s three-month winter vacation, the final round of games were played in December. Shakhtar Donetsk led the league with 47 points after 18 games at the time, two points ahead of Dynamo Kyiv.

The league has decided to cancel the 2021-22 season because it seems unlikely that the games will be completed.

The UPL said in a statement on Tuesday that “the football clubs of the Ukrainian Premier League supported the idea to terminate the 2021-22 season… because the championship cannot be completed due to the continuation of martial law situation in Ukraine.”

‘The standings on February 24, 2022, will be the final standings for the 2021-22 season, with no champions.’ The Ukrainian Association of Football’s executive committee was asked to approve the appropriate decision.’

The top two teams in the standings have already qualified for the Champions League.
