A NEW LOCATION: The directorate also made the decision to move two upcoming games of Ukraine's other squad in the league, Mariupol-based Azovmash, to the Russian cities of Samara and Volgograd, respectively. Donetsk was not available for comment. The squad continues to play in the Ukrainian league, where it is currently in second place, behind Khimik Yuzhny. The VTB League features 20 teams from the former Soviet republics, Poland and the Czech Republic. The future of many Ukrainian professional teams is currently uncertain because of the the poor economic situation in the country and possible secession of the Black Sea peninsular region of Crimea.
