RFU President Alexander Dyukov at a press conference after the executive committee of the organization expressed his attitude to a possible change in the limit for legionnaires in Russian football. His words are quoted by the correspondent of RBC.
“This system is ‘8 + 17’ – it is more effective than the limit ‘6 + 5’. We see that clubs have become more selective in the selection of foreign players. It became easier for coaches to work. The playing time of young Russians has grown. But any limit, no matter how you set it up, has its drawbacks – it is flawed. And, of course, the optimal system in which there is no limit. We are now discussing the issue of the limit with the government, ”Dyukov said.
Dyukov announced the date for the appointment of a new coach. The main thing at the executive committee of the RFU
In Tinkoff – Russian Premier League (RPL), the limit is “8 legionnaires + 17 Russians” in the application.
In early July, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, following a meeting with the participation of Minister of Sports Oleg Matytsin, representatives of the presidential administration, as well as heads of sports federations, said that the results of the Russian national team at the European Championship were unsatisfactory, pointing out the dominance of legionnaires in clubs and an overheated salary market athletes. Until mid-July, the Ministry of Sports, together with sports federations and professional leagues, was instructed to prepare proposals for establishing a ceiling for athletes’ salaries. Also, the department will develop proposals for optimizing the number of legionnaires in Russian teams and the requirements for them.

Previously, this item was introduced in an experimental mode at the suggestion of the Krasnodar football club, initially it was supported by many teams in the league. However, it was decided not to use this on an ongoing basis, having excluded clause from Article 52 “Special Jurisdiction of the RFU Control and Disciplinary Committee.”

Tim Tszyu, the son of the former undisputed world champion Kostya Tszyu, defended his WBO Global title in the weight category up to 69.9 kg. He defeated Australian Steve Spark by TKO in the third round.
The boxing evening took place in Newcastle, Australia. Initially, Tszyu was supposed to fight with Australian Michael Zerafa, but he refused the fight due to coronavirus restrictions, he was replaced by Spark.
Match TV responded to claims of “misleading viewers”
The first round was held in an equal fight, but already from the second Tszyu seized the initiative. In the third round, after hitting the body, Spark was knocked down. After some time, Tszyu hit the body well again, his opponent fell, and the referee stopped the fight without opening the score.
The 26-year-old Tszyu now has 19 wins (15 by knockout) and not a single defeat. He won five knockout wins in a row. Tszyu ranks first in the WBO rankings and has the right to fight the world champion, who is now Argentine Brian Castagno.
Spark, 24, suffered a second defeat with 12 wins (11 by KO).
The match was broadcast on its website “Telesport”. And “Match TV” before the fight showed a recording of Tszyu’s previous fight – against Dennis Hogan, which took place on March 31 and ended with Tszyu’s victory by knockout.
Telesport compared this situation with the one that arose in January 2020, when Channel One broadcasted the World Youth Championship final between the national teams of Russia and Canada, and Match TV at the same time demonstrated a replay of the decisive match of the 2011 tournament. The Canadians won the 2020 championship, the Russians won the 2011 championship. Many viewers perceived the replay as a live broadcast.
In Match TV, they said that they wanted to broadcast Tszyu’s new fight live, but “the partners did not show understanding of the importance of showing the fight to a wide audience.” As for the replay of Tszyu’s old fight, his show ended before the start of the meeting with Spark.
Kostya Tszyu held world titles in all three prestigious versions in 2001-2003. In total, he has 31 wins (25 by knockout) and two defeats. Tszyu is also a world champion and two-time European champion among amateurs.
Today, a powerful cyclone, which came from Turkey, covered several regions of Crimea at once. About 10 thousand Crimeans were left without electricity.
Flooding, mudflows, power outages – showers in Crimea caused trouble again. It is especially difficult in the Bakhchisarai region. There, according to the information of the Crimean hydrometeorological center, two monthly norms of precipitation fell today. At least 50 houses were flooded. One person died.
The inhabitants of the Bakhchisarai region in the Crimea have become hostages of the elements today. For several hours there was a downpour, the Belbek River overflowed its banks and flooded several villages: Sokolinoe – a mudflow descended there, Golubinka, Kuibyshevo. Rubbish, branches, trees – all this formed an artificial dam, the water could not go along its bed and flooded several households. People were evacuated. Now employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations and Krymspas are working here.
“Several people were injured. An elderly woman died. Many houses are now empty. People are taken to schools, some villagers leave their homes and go to their relatives. Even in the morning they did not even suspect that the bad weather would hit the area so hard,” says the head of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations Russia in the Republic of Crimea Arkady Ozhigin.
The water blew away everything in its path, even fences. The courtyards in the village of Kuibyshev are littered with debris, branches, trees, water is pumped out by the Emergencies Ministry. The harvest can no longer be saved. The machines, too, were trapped by the elements. In Kuibyshev, they could not even imagine a repetition of the Yalta events. And there tonight heavy rains again raised the water level in the river beds. Two streets were flooded – Krivoshty and Vergasova. Heavy machinery has been working there since the morning. On Vergasova Street, part of the road bridge had to be removed so that water could flow along the riverbed.
The water level in the rivers of the Bakhchisarai region has dropped markedly.
The region remains on high alert and storm warning. Today, a powerful cyclone, which came from Turkey, covered several regions of Crimea at once and cut off the power. About 10 thousand Crimeans were left without electricity.

The Control and Disciplinary Committee of the RFU suspended the sports director of the Chaika club Oleg Bayan and judge Sergei Kostevich from football activities for life. This was reported on the official website of the RFU.
They were punished for organizing a fixed match in the Olympus-PFL championship (the third-strongest division in Russia). We are talking about the meeting “Chaika” – “Angusht” (5: 0), which took place on October 21, 2018. The result of this match was annulled, “The Seagull” was awarded a technical defeat with a score of 0: 3.

The FTC also suspended the inspector of that meeting, Valery Bulygin, from football activities for five years.
In addition, the CDC transferred The Seagull, which in the 2020/21 season took 12th place in the Olymp-FNL championship (the second-strongest division), to the lower division – Olymp-PFL.
This decision is due to the fact that the club organized match fixing several times in 2018. In particular, in 2020, referee Maxim Matyunin was suspended for life for a contractual match in the 1/32 finals of the Russian Cup between Seagull and Armavir. The result of this game was annulled, the “Seagull” was awarded a forfeit defeat. Three more referees were suspended for life because of the game between Chaika and Druzhba in the PFL.
