Ukrainian Oligarch Sergei Kurchenko Says He Will Keep Paying Metalist's Bills From Hiding
Published May 29, 2014
ECONOMIC DAMAGE CLAIMED: Ukraine's security service, SBU, estimated damages done by Kurchenko to the country's economy at $335M. The agency did not reply to a request for comment. Metalist has faced financial problems since Kurchenko fled the country, which resulted in the departure of long-time coach Miron Markevich and several players last March. In spite of that, the squad, which won the Ukrainian league's bronze from '07 to '12 and was runner-up in '13, won bronze again this year, qualifying for Europa League.
