The 22-year-old, who is close friends with Sedan, starred for Ukraine as they beat Serbia 5-0 in a Euro 2020 qualifier on Friday
Oleksandr Zinchenko kissed a reporter on live TV following Ukraine’s emphatic win over Serbia on Friday.
Ukraine beat Serbia 5-0 in a Euro 2020 qualifier with the Manchester City left-back starring in a midfield role.
There was initial outrage on social media when Zinchenko kissed Vlada Sedan at the end of his post-match interview.
Heavyweight boxer Kubrat Pulev was fined, banned and ordered to take sexual harassment prevention classes after kissing reporter Jennifer Ravalo without her consent in March.
However, Zinchenko and Sedan are close friends and have been pictured together in the past.
The 22-year-old played a crucial role in Manchester City’s historic treble-winning season and was able to keep a fit-again Benjamin Mendy out of the team.

Reports have claimed Zinchenko is in line for a new contract as a reward for his fine end-of-season form.
City have been linked with a big-money move for Leicester and England left-back Ben Chilwell, but Zinchenko’s improved performances could see Pep Guardiola prioritise other signings.
The former Ufa defender opted against a move to Wolves after a £16million fee had been agreed last summer, a decision which has paid off with Premier League, Carabao Cup and FA Cup winners’ medals.
