FIFA Apologizes To Ukraine For Including Crimea In Map Of Russia In Presentation Of World Cup 2018 Emblem

"We regret the inconveniencies entailed by this annoying incident and assure you that in future we'll be more attentive to the materials made by third parties," the FIFA said.

The international football federation FIFA has apologized to Ukraine for including Crimea in the map of Russia in the presentation of the emblem of the football World Cup 2018, reads a statement made by the Football Federation.

The Football Federation of Ukraine has received a letter from the FIFA in which the international football association tendered apologies for the incident that took place during the presentation of the World Cup 2018 emblem in Moscow.

In frames of presentation of the official emblem a local steering committee ordered a local creative agency to do an artistic imagery to be projected on the Bolshoy Theatre facade.

The FIFA notices that it overlooked the map of Russia, chosen and used by a local service provider, at which the Ukrainian region of Crimea is shown as though part of Russia, when uploading the video material to the site and the YouTube channel.

"We regret the inconveniencies entailed by this annoying incident and assure you that in future we'll be more attentive to the materials made by third parties," the FIFA said.

The original video has been removed from Fifa's YouTube channel and replaced with an edited version excluding the two-second sequence in which the map of Russia was shown.

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, on October 30, the Football Federation asked FIFA President Sepp Blatter to explain the reason for including Crimea in the map of Russia in the presentation of the World Cup 2018 emblem.

The FIFA explained the inclusion of the Russia-occupied Crimea on the map of Russia in the presentation of the World Cup 2018 emblem with inattention when accepting the video clip.
