Ukraine seeks court order to resolve Euro stadium dispute

KIEV, Jan 17 (Reuters) – Ukraine’s prosecutor general is seeking a court order to tear down a semi-built shopping centre next to the capital’s Olympic stadium, which is due to host the Euro 2012 final, his office said on Thursday.

European soccer’s governing body UEFA says the shopping centre makes it unsafe to use all 80,000 seats at the stadium because it blocks some exits. A decree from President Viktor Yushchenko has already demanded a halt to construction.

“Given that the construction breaks the law and building regulations, is dangerous for spectators, threatens the Olympic Stadium’s operations and makes it impossible to host the Euro 2012 final, the general prosecutor has undertaken to oblige the (company building it) to dismantle it,” a statement said.

UEFA President Michel Platini has already said the 2012 European Championship final cannot be held at the Kiev stadium unless the construction issue is resolved.

Capacity at the stadium, used by the national team and Dynamo Kiev for big matches such as the Champions League, has already been halved after UEFA’s verdict on safety.

Poland and Ukraine, both ex-communist states, were chosen last year to co-host Euro 2012 and face a huge task to prepare top-level stadiums, build hotels and modernise infrastructure. (Editing by Ken Ferris)


It turns out “mass vehicular murder” is somewhat less common than you’d expect. But Cheap Oakleys Sunglasses people do respond to the lack of traffic cops and DMV regulations by making their cars a thousand times more awesome. Case in point: Our hosts captained a motorized pirate land junk straight out of Burning Man. It didn’t have seat belts, airbags, or most of the other stuff that makes a car, but we’d challenge you to find a more stylish way to sail the desert.Vogue Australia circulates 51K print copies per month but their website gets 1.1 million visitors per month.

He’s physically explosive at both ends of the floor and will help protect the rim. Joining him at center will be 6 10 sophomore Mangok Mathiang, an exciting young project that showed promise early last season and could lead the conference in blocked shots (1.4 per game in 14.7 minutes as a freshman). 6 10 freshman Chinanu Onuaku, a top 60 recruit, will provide another shot blocker and strong rebounder. He is the younger brother of bruising former Syracuse center Arinze Onuaku. Another top 70 recruit, Jaylen Johnson, should have a game similar to Harrell’s. At 7 1 and just under NFL Jerseys China 200 pounds as a high school senior, top 70 recruit Anas Mahmoud seems like a likely redshirt candidate considering the teams depth and his need to add weight.
