"Ukraine and all four cities must do their best to stage Euro 2012. Fifty-two days have passed since the last meeting at UEFA, and UEFA remained satisfied with the efforts being made by the government. However, it's clear that UEFA was dissatisfied with the fact that Ukraine has made very little progress over the past three years. This is what UEFA is dissatisfied with. Therefore, everything is in the hands of Ukraine after the meeting of the supervisory board," Kolesnikov said.

He expressed confidence that Ukraine was currently able to cope with all tasks set by UEFA.

"I want to say that there's currently no situation that we cannot resolve and that one or two Ukrainian cities can lose their right to host Euro 2012. Thus, all four Ukrainian cities secure the chance of staging Euro 2012," Kolesnikov said.
