Euro 2012/Ukraine: “weather policy” no impact on the games

The matches of the Euro 2012 football championship in Ukraine will be provided despite threats of boycott and political tension around the country, told reporters the president of the Ukrainian parliament Vladimir Litvin during a press briefing in St. Petersburg .

“I dare say that Euro 2012 will take place regardless of weather, including weather policy,” the official said.

He said the situation surrounding the tournament is far too politicized, particularly in order to distract people from economic problems.

Previously, many European politicians said they would boycott the matches of Euro 2012 football championship in Ukraine because of the situation related to the former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.
