According to the official website of Kharkov City Council, Conference of the Football Federation on December 16 held elections for senior management and introduced minor amendments to the organization's charter.
“I am open to suggestions; we need to start working in an open format. If account of the federation holds only 300 hryvnia, what kind of work can we talk about? We must get to different targets and indicators,” said Gennady Kernes.
