The RFEF highlights the decisive collaboration of the Romanian Federation, which has assisted Jorge López, director of the FC Kryvbas academy, at the border. Also, Izan Martin, physical trainer of Dnipro, and Marc Gual, forward of Dnipro, left Ukraine through the same border point. Abraham Campomar, Spanish coach and analyst for the Ukrainian national team, is currently crossing the border in a convoy of three vehicles in which he and his family travel.

In addition, the coach Lluís Cortés and Jordi Escura have also been able to leave Ukraine via Poland, in another cooperation exercise between the Polish and Ukrainian federations, which informed and coordinated each movement with the RFEF.
