The recent developments in Ukraine have led to a need for further clarification concerning the registration of players of Ukrainian nationality with clubs affiliated to other member associations.
It is an extension to the temporary ruling FIFA issued on March 7 that permitted foreign players and coaches in both Ukraine and Russia to move on loan to clubs abroad until the end of June 2022.
FIFA said in a statement: "The recent developments in Ukraine have led to a need for further clarification concerning the registration of players of Ukrainian nationality with clubs affiliated to other member associations.
"Accordingly, the Bureau of the Council has today decided to amend Annexe 7 of the RSTP to provide Ukrainian players with the opportunity to be registered, should they be allowed to leave the country in accordance with current rules on the cross-border movement of Ukrainian nationals."
Effectively, Ukrainian players can now be registered with another club even if that registration period is closed in the association of the club with which they intend to be registered.
As with FIFA's earlier amendment to its statutes, individual clubs are not able to sign more than two players who have benefited from the exemption.
The Ukrainian league has been suspended indefinitely, with Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kyiv separated by just two points at the top.
And the two clubs dominate TransferRoom's Expected Transfer Value (xTV) standings.
Seven Dynamo Kiev players are among the 10 most valuable domestic players in the league, headlined by 24-year-old international winger Viktor Tsygankov (€25.1m).
Tsygankov is actually the most valuable player in the UPL, regardless of nationality, slightly ahead of Shakhtar's Brazilian Tetê (€24.7m), while his teammate Ilya Zabarnyi (€15m) has the highest xTV of any teenager in the league.
Three Shakhtar players make the domestic top 10 table by xTV (see graphic below).
In contrast, nine of Shakhtar's players accounted for the 10 most expensive foreign players in the league, per xTV, with just one Dynamo Kiev player.
