Ukraine opened new airport terminals in the four cities that hosted the Euro 2012 football championship games this summer. But this week’s shutdown of duty-free stores and restaurants in terminals across the country is likely to turn off visitors and tourists. Adding to the confusion, authorities announced on Sept. 4 that the biggest new terminal opened in Kyiv, Terminal D, will be auctioned to an investor. The terminal has remained largely empty and unused since the Euro 2012 games.
