TITLE

  • A mistake made in a match between FC Kuban Krasnodar and Lokomotiv Moscow, march 2007, not only cost Ivanov half his pay, he was aslo banned for a month. Ivonov had allowed players to rush into the penaltybox before the penalty was taken. Whereas banning in most countries only happens after misdemeaners like taking bribes, in Russia it is a normal and often used procedure, even for minor mistakes like the one made by Ivanov.
  • At the end of 2009 Ivanov refused to officiate matches in the Russian Championship because he didn't agree with the designations of referees. Ivanov, then the most important ref in his country, stated he should get more and more important matches.
