MOSCOW, Ma y 31 /TASS/. A regular conference of the Russian Football Union will take place in Moscow on Sunday. Pre-term resignation of the union’s president Nikolai Tostykh is part of the agenda.
The executive committee of the Russian Football Union decided to include the question of Tolstykh’s resignation in the agenda at its meeting a month ago because of the union’s unfavourable financial situation. The Russian Football Union accumulated a 1.4 billion rouble (26 749.8 U.S. dollars ) by late May 2015. The conference has the right to accept or change the agenda.
Nikolai Tolstykh was elected president of the Russian Football Union in September 2012 for a four-year term.
"Alongside with the existing shortcomings in the activities of the Russian Football Union in recent years, there have been plenty of positive aspects in its work. As for the difficult financial situation, of which I am being accused particularly often, I will be ready to explain why that has happened. I am even ready to show the direction of some financial flows in Russian football," the head of the Russian Football Union said.
Other items on the agenda will include the election of the last member to the Russian Football Union executive committee; a report of the union’s executive committee, the adopted of new members, changes to election rules in part of electronic voting. The conference is also expected to elect new members of the Control and Revision Commission.
