Recall that in December 2014 the UEFA banned the Crimean football clubs to participate in the championship of Russia on 1 January 2015. After that, the RFU has ruled out the clubs of the Crimean Peninsula from the second division of the championship of Russia.
In may 2015 the representative of the Regional football Federation of the Crimea Georgy Elyakov announced that UEFA was allowed to hold the championship of the Crimea.
