UEFA president Michel Platini says Ukraine will not lose its right to co-host the Euro 2012 finals.
Preparations for the finals have been running behind schedule in Ukraine due to a financial crisis and constant political turmoil. There has been speculation that Ukraine could be stripped of the event which they are due to co-host with Poland.
But Platini, who is in Kiev to inspect preparations for the event, said Wednesday that Ukraine would still play host to the tournament.
“It is impossible that Ukraine would lose Euro 2012,” he said.
