The Ukrainian FA has urged FIFA to forbid Iran from competing in the Qatar-hosted World Cup in 2022.



This information was made public in a statement issued on Monday by the Ukrainian FA executive committee.

Later this month, Qatar will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Iran is charged with giving Russia weapons to aid in their ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

Additionally, the Western Asian nation is charged with violating FIFA's rules on human rights and anti-discrimination, specifically articles 3 and 4.

"Taking into consideration the media reports about systemic human rights abuses in Iran, which may violate the FIFA charter's tenets and standards,

The Ukrainian FA appealed to FIFA with a suggestion to take the Iranian national team out of consideration for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, citing UN Security Council resolution 22.31 regarding the imposition of sanctions on Iran and the alleged involvement of Iran in the military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.

This appeal comes just days after Shakhtar Donetsk CEO Sergei Palkin also called for Iran to be excluded and replaced by Ukraine at this year’s tournament.

The Ukrainian capital city of Kyiv was hit by Iranian-made ‘kamikaze’ drones deployed by the Russian military earlier in September.

President Volodymyr Zelensky claimed seven such drones had been shot down, while the United States of America said Iran had deployed military experts in Russian-occupied Crimea.

Ukraine and Russia have been fighting since February this year.

Several casualties have already been recorded as of today as a result of the war.
