KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine's domestic soccer league will resume play on March 15, after a two-week postponement because of the turmoil in the country.

The season was scheduled to restart on Feb. 28 following a two-month winter break. But the start was delayed because of protests and the toppling of President Viktor Yanukovych.

Sport and Youth Minister Dmytro Bulatov says "inasmuch as the entire country awaits the conduct of matches in the soccer championship, the competition must resume as soon as possible."

Two rounds of play were missed and the country's soccer federation hasn't determined when they'll be rescheduled.

Tavria Simferopol and FC Sevastopol, both located in Crimea, say they intend to keep competing in the Ukrainian league.
