The war followed almost a full year of mobilization of Russian soldiers across the Ukrainian border with Belarus and Russia, including in the occupied Donbas region. Since the war broke out, Ukraine has had to discontinue sports events until now, with Ukrainian forces advancing steadily in multiple directions in the East.
FeedConstruct CEO Artashes Sargsyan chose to focus purely on the business aspect of the deal and said that despite the challenging circumstances, Ukrainian soccer has demonstrated a strong will, and now, fans around the world, will have the opportunity to follow the competition through FeedConstruct’s offer.
FeedConstruct has confirmed that more than 200 matches will be shown through its solutions and the league will get the coverage it deserves as the first games are set to arrive. The war in Ukraine has had a toll on the gambling and sports industry as well.

KRAIL also recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with its Lithuanian counterpart for the exchange of know-how in order to strengthen AML and CTF practices.
