Ukraine has already lost six Olympic medals due to unfair referees at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Ukrainian Premier Mykola Azarov said.

"Frankly speaking, the referees are really unfair," he said at a meeting with employees of the Impulse Plant in Shostka (Sumy region) on Thursday.

"The country has to be really strong so as not to be deprived of medals," Azarov said.
