The Ukrainian Premier League has been paused for a minimum of 30 days after Russia’s President Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
The league was meant to restart on Friday, following its winter break, but the league confirmed via their official website that the start has been delayed after the introduction of martial law overnight by Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
Russia has launched all-out war on Ukraine, with missiles and bombs, tanks rolling across the border from Belarus, troops parachuting down on eastern regions and explosions seen across the country after Putin personally gave the order for his forces to attack.
Hundreds of Ukrainian troops were killed in early clashes, Kiev said, as the fight came to them on all fronts at a moment’s notice. Cruise missiles, guided bombs and GRAD rockets took out targets from east to west – aimed at airfields, military bases, ammo dumps, and command posts.
