Shakhtar CEO Palkin: We are a Ukrainian club, Shakhtar will never play in the RPL

MOSCOW, April 26 – Donetsk football club “Shakhtar” will play in the Ukrainian championship, the transition to the Russian Premier League is out of the question, said the general director of the team Sergei Palkin.
The current draw of the championship of Ukraine, in which “Shakhtar” was in the lead, was suspended in February. Shakhtar are 13-time champions of Ukraine.
“We will never return to Donetsk if it is Russian. We are a Ukrainian club, we will only play in the Ukrainian league and will never play in the Russian championship. This is the main idea that I want to emphasize,” Palkin said in an interview. BBC.
Shakhtar left Donetsk in 2014 and have since played home games in Lviv, Kharkiv and Kyiv.
