MOSCOW, August 4. /TASS/. Russian billionaire businessman Alisher Usmanov has provided 1 billion-ruble ($16 million) gratuitous financial aid to Russia’s Football Union (RFU), the tycoon’s press office said on Tuesday.
"I provided gratuitous financial support to the RFU to the total amount of 1 billion rubles," Usmanov said.

"I want to wish success to the RFU and all those who are not indifferent to the fate of Russian football.
