According to his agent, new player of a Polish title holder Asseco Resovia Rzeszów already had some conversations with the Polish Volleyball Federation although he’s in Poland only since 2014.

The whole process of changing the federation membership takes at least a year, but a big plus for Pashytskyy is that he has never been called to play for Ukraine or any other national team.

His agent also emphasized that Pashytskyy wants to tie his future to Poland and that is the reason number one why he wants the citizenship. Only then comes everything else.

Currently the most famous case of changing national team is also happening in Poland – Wilfredo León’s.

Resovia’s management confirmed that it is familiar with the desire of Ukrainian, but denied it had an influence on the decision to hire him.

Resovia already has two players who gained Polish citizenship – Olieg Achrem and Lukáš Ticháček and currently four foreigners in the squad – Jochen Schöps, Thomas Jaeschke, Dmytro Pashytskyy and Nikolay Penchev. If Pashytskyy receives Polish passport, the team could bring another foreigner.

It might go through this season, but Plus League board members initially agreed that the in the season 2017/2018, the players with dual nationality will be treated as foreigners.
