Co – hosts Ukraine have been criticised by UEFA for the slow pace at which preparations for Euro 2012 are being made.

Ukraine had previously been warned in January by UEFA President Michel Platini for their almost lack of progress.

To date there remain unresolved problems over stadium construction or upgrades, accommodation as well as upgrades to airport, rail or road transport systems. According to reports UEFA are dissatisfied mostly with the state of airports in the cities earmarked to host UkraineÂ’s matches, namely Donetsk, Lviv, Dnepropetrovsk and Kiev.

Platini is expected to visit co – hosts Poland and Ukraine in July after Euro 2008.
