KIEV, Feb 19 (Reuters) – Ukraine will invite UEFA chief Michel Platini to tour a new stadium to see for himself the ex-Soviet state’s progress in preparing to co-host the Euro 2012 finals, President Viktor Yushchenko said on Tuesday.

“In a few weeks, I will invite Mr Platini to Dnipropetrovsk,” local news agencies quoted Yushchenko as saying after a visit to a stadium nearing completion in the central city to be used in the 2012 tournament.

“I would like it known that Dnipropetrovsk is showing a high level of readiness of its sports facilities for Euro 2012.”

A UEFA delegation is visiting Ukraine this week to inspect building sites and other facilities.

Platini last month expressed alarm that Ukraine and their co-hosts Poland were behind schedule in their preparations and the coming months would prove “decisive”.

Authorities have since taken a decision to allow Kiev’s main stadium to be used by dismantling parts of an adjacent shopping centre which threatened to disqualify it on safety grounds.

The western city of Lviv, another 2012 host city, last month appointed an Austrian contractor to build a new stadium.
