Russians Go Ukrainian




KIEV -- Three Russian-born Dynamo Kiev players have decided to take up Ukrainian citizenship, a senior Ukrainian Football Federation official said Friday.


"Serhiy Kormiltsev, Serhiy Serebrennikov and Artyom Yashkin have officially become Ukrainian citizens and are now eligible to represent their new country in international competition," UFF vice president Anatoly Dybenko said.


Dybenko said all three could make their international debuts for Ukraine in next month's crucial European Championship Group 4 qualifier against Russia in Moscow.
