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.
