New Twist For Ukraine 2012 Preparations

Filed under: Ukraine — Ivan @ 2:43 am

Poland and Ukraine’s Euro 2012 preparations are still chaotic, with politics hampering urgent work needing done in Kiev…

President Viktor Yushchenko accused Ukranian government officials sabotaging the reconstruction of the main stadium hosting Euro 2012 matches, telling his prime minister to make sure the project goes ahead.

UEFA President Michel Platini was dismayed by the slow pace of developments when he visited Kiev in February and said that his next visit in July would be “decisive”. The Ukraine are co-hosting with Poland.

Yushchenko wrote to Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko saying that no action had been taken to proceed with the renovation of Kiev’s 84,000-seat Olympic stadium – to be used for the final – work supposed to be carried out by a Taiwanese firm.

The President’s statement said: “Delays and what amounts to sabotage by oficials at the Sports Ministry could disrupt the renovation schedule at Ukraine’s main stadium.

“I am asking you to intervene personally to immediately correct the situation, avoid an international scandal and ensure that preparations for Euro 2012 proceed in timely and reliable fashion.”

He continued, telling the Prime Minister that it’s: “urgent to dismiss officials who are seeking to review the results of the tender and block the start of work, thereby causing considerable harm to the country’s image”.

The £150m reconstruction project is set for further delays as Arsenal Kiev have revealed that ministry officials will allow the club to use the Olympic stadium until October, indicating that the work will not be started until after then.

Furthermore, airports, rail networks, roads and hotels all require upgrading before Uefa will be satisfied with the nation’s efforts.
