The Football Federation of Ukraine (FFU) will seek the introduction of criminal liability for match-fixing and corruption in football, Ukrinform reports.

FFU First Vice President Serhiy Storozhenko said this at an international seminar "Transparency in Sport" in Kyiv on Tuesday.

"The federation will seek the introduction of criminal liability for corruption in football and even for attempts to organize match-fixing. This should concern players, referees, coaches, and club owners," Storozhenko said.

He noted that two years ago, FFU experts prepared a bill introducing respective amendments to the Criminal Code of Ukraine, but it has not yet been submitted for consideration by parliament.
"Corruption destroys sport, and the situation is alarming," Storozhenko said.

He also stressed the need to enhance cooperation with law enforcement agencies in the fight against these crimes and said that the FFU was initiating the inclusion of a provision about intolerance to corruption in the contracts of young players.
