FC Shakhtar statement regarding the accident in the Ukrainian League game Shakhtar vs Dynamo

FC Shakhtar categorically opposes any manifestations and forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and any related intolerance. There can be no justification of those who insult other people because of their skin colour, religious, or political beliefs. This kind of behaviour is unacceptable in any civilized countries and football leagues. UEFA imposes the toughest sanctions on the clubs and associations for their fans’ racist behaviour in matches.
Such humiliating accidents cause pain and disappointment to the large football family of FC Shakhtar. We condemn this kind of behavior of the audience, we will always voice the support and protect our players. We are calling on football authorities and clubs to stop racism in the stadiums.
