MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS /. The Russian Football Union (RFU) will draw up a document indicating a strategy to reform Russian football, following a meeting with the authors of a public petition demanding the dissolution of the national football team, Russian Sports Minister and RFU head, Vitaly Mutko, told reporters on Friday.
The petition to disband the Russian national team was posted on the change.org website in June. To date, it has chalked up about 948,000 signatures. On Friday, Mutko met with the petition’s author, Artyom Khasanov, a resident of the Siberian city of Tyumen.
"We agreed that we would forge a final document, which the RFU could rely on while finalizing the strategy," Mutko said.
The Russian team performed poorly at the UEFA Euro 2016 held in France this summer, failing to reach the knock-out stage. Russia ended its match with England in a 1-1 draw, followed by a 1-2 loss to Slovakia and a 0-3 shutout by Wales.
