TEL-AVIV (AFP) – UEFA president Michel Platini on Thursday vowed to ask authorities in Kiev why Ukraine's preparations to co-host the 2012 European Championship with Poland have been delayed.
"We'll see if there is political stability (in Ukraine)," said Platini after the UEFA Congress meeting here.
"I'll go to Kiev in April and I will have a frank and serious conversation with the new government to see the situation, and also maybe bang my fist on the table a bit.
"We are confident (that Ukraine will be able to co-host the tournament) but I've seen photos of the stadium and I'm not completely reassured. We can't change the date. It will be Euro 2012, not 2014."
Ukraine's preparations to organise the quadrennial football showpiece have been hit by political turmoil and serious economic problems in the country.
Earlier in the morning, Platini told those attending the congress: "Yes, Euro 2012 will certainly take place as planned and as promised in Poland and Ukraine. These countries will welcome the football of Europe in June 2012."
The former France star underlined the "desire and enthusiasm" of the Poles and Ukrainians, but admitted that there "numerous difficulties" to overcome.
"We've had to constantly adapt and re-adapt our approach to take this major challenge forward," he added.
"What's more, the economic crisis has arrived there and struck extremely hard in one of the two countries (Ukraine).
"Of course conditions will not be exactly the same as what we had at the last two tournaments," Platini continued, in reference to the 2004 tournament in Portugal and the 2008 edition in Switzerland and Austria.
Directly addressing the men behind Euro 2012, he said: "Mr Surkis (president of the Ukrainian football federation), Mr Lato (president of the Polish federation), you absolutely must hold your course in the final stretch.
"I believe in you, we believe in you. So don't weaken but re-double your efforts. It's not over yet!"

Michel Platini doubts Ukraine can host Euro 2012 as venue construction stalls

Uefa president Michel Platini has raised serious doubts over the future of Ukraine as co-hosts of Euro 2012 after revealing progress on stadium construction has ground to a halt.



Warning: Uefa president Michel Platini has issued a slap on the wrist to Ukraine's Euro 2012 organisers


Ukraine are set to share hosting duties for the world's second largest football tournament with neighbours Poland in two years' time.
But concerns over the former Soviet republic's readiness have dominated headlines in recent months, with Platini raising fresh doubts in a speech to the European Union on Monday.


The Uefa president admitted to gathered dignitaries that work on one of the country's four stadia in western Lviv had stopped completely and 'made no progress whatsoever' over the harsh eastern European winter.

Work on the venues and the infrastructure of the four Ukrainian host cities is already significantly behind schedule due to adverse weather conditions.

Martin Kallen, Uefa's point man tasked with ensuring Euro 2012 goes ahead, has admitted work in Ukraine could be as much as five months behind schedule.



'We are currently at an important phase of the project, but there are delays in Ukraine and Kiev due to the harsh winter,' he said.
'They say it is a five-month delay, I think it is a little bit less.
'But it still needs to be reduced with more people on the ground and with acceleration of the project.'


Several alternative host nations have been mooted as fall-back options if the Ukrainian FA are unable to deliver on their targets to Uefa, with Germany and England among the possible options.
However, Platini has not yet suggested the tournament could be moved as Poland's four host cities are on course to meet next year's deadlines.

England? What the hell? I hate how the media is producing these stupid accusations. Although the situation in Ukraine is really bad, they are already making it sound like it will be stripped from Ukraine. We wont allow our country to co host with Germany. NEVER. I'm sure all the Polish fans would agree. The only way to keep it in both nations and make Euro 2012 a success would be to give more hosting privilages to Polish cities in terms of matches. We will see in the future what UEFA decides.

Platini said there are no backups today, as in specifically that it won't be co-hosted with the likes of Germany (not that I mind if they did). It's either going to be 4+4, 4+2, 6+2 or all in Poland, what we land on depends on what the Ukraine does now, their fate is quite literally in their hands, but it might not be for long if they don't get their act together.

Poland will be prepared excellent.If the Ukraine is no able to finish all necessary investments, I would suggest to make Poland as only one host with Cracow and Chorzow. 6 stadiums could be enough to make wonderful competition. I have nothing against little backup from Germans, for exemple from Dresden and Berlin.Both citys are situated only 50 km from polish border.

Poland is on track and they'll be great hosts. The problem is with Ukrainian politicians, or should I say Ukrainian thieves. If Ukraine is not able to host I'm sure Poland can handle it themselves.

It looks like UEFA has decided to change Lviv for Dnipropetrovsk. We all saw that coming.

Yeah, those commie blocks are an eye-sore. Oh well, at least the stadium is rising.

Well, Warsaw has many districts, not all of them are worth watching same as in majority of big cities in the World. From what I know, Berlin or London has also high numbers of commieblocks.

Interfax-Ukraine:

UEFA President Michel Platini has said he has doubts that a semi-final match of the Euro 2012 European Football Championship could be played in Donetsk.

"Every city has its problems and advantages. Lviv has more stadiums, but no stadium [like the Donbass Arena]. Donetsk has an amazing stadium, but there are not enough hotels to stage a semi-final," he said at a press conference at the Donbass Arena stadium in Donetsk on Thursday.

Platini said that the Olympiysky National Sports Complex in Kyiv was to be commissioned by June 2011.

"If all goes well, the stadium should be built by June 2011, but that's only if all goes well," he said.

Platini also said that he had a talk with FC Shakhtar Donetsk President Rinat Akhmetov, but added that they had not discussed preparations for Euro 2012.

He said that he had spoken with Akhmetov about Shakhtar and that the club's president had presented him with a pen.

Platini also noted that he was planning to meet with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych on Thursday, April 8.
