Kashshai has held this post since the beginning of 2020.
“We thank Viktor for his work and implementation of European standards into our system, which are, of course, important for the reform of refereeing carried out by the RFU.
Victor has created a system for training professional league referees for in-competition matches, influencing future game appointments. It is based on a high intensity of the training process and regular monitoring of physical activity.
While the position of the head of the refereeing department is not taken, the deputy head of the refereeing department Pavel Kamantsev will be responsible for all administrative questions, Nikolay Ivanov will conduct a debriefing on the results of the last round.
We will inform about appointments for the upcoming rounds as usual, “said the head of the RFU Referee Committee Ashot Khachaturyants.
