Though the long term future will not be safe until Sokil Kyiv find some funding, not so much because of the senior team, but because losing their youth system would be a devastating blow that would take a long time to recover from.
I read somewhere that Donbass will have an MHL team, not this year but the 2012-13 season (can't find the link now). If Donbass can gain control over some good Ukrainian youth players and get them in the MHL, I think that would mitigate the lack of development from Sokol Kiev.
