The Minister of youth and sports of Ukraine Igor Zhdanov met with the champion of the Minsk European games 2019 in the Cycling of Anna Nightingale.
In the framework of this meeting, he supported the decision about the resignation of the President of the Cycling Federation Alexander Bashenko.
“I certainly support demands for the resignation of the Turrets from the post of President of the Cycling Federation of Ukraine… I think that such behavior is unacceptable, it’s rude.
I took the decision to establish a working group with colleagues, for discussion of these issues. And the question on deprivation of the Federation of national status and termination of the cooperation agreement is under discussion and requires further analysis
She (the Nightingale – approx. ed.) is a member of the national team of Ukraine, the contract concluded with the Ministry… I even thought this did not arise,” – said the Minister.
We will remind that the conflict between the Turrets and cyclist of the national team of Ukraine came to Facebook after the athlete was indignant that the Cycling Federation of Ukraine at its official page in the social network was congratulated with the victory of the Nightingale in the European games, the head of the Kyiv Cycling Federation Sergey Mushroom. Nightingale said that he did not know this person and don’t understand why it thank.
