A set of Olympic rings are seen standing in front of apartments for athletes during a media opportunity at the Olympic and Paralympic athlete's village in London, Thursday, July 12, 2012. The London Olympics begin on July 27.
"We will have another opportunity to represent our country at the most important sporting event - the Olympic Games. This is especially important, because the Olympic Games will be held in England - a country where some TV channels spread untruthful and misleading information about Ukraine ahead of Euro 2012. They will have a good opportunity to change their views about our country and tell it to their viewers," he wrote on his page on Facebook on Friday.
He also said that he plans to attend the official opening ceremony of the Olympic Games on July 27. He said that this would be a one-day visit to London.
"The program of my visit covers only the day of July 27. In my opinion, we will be returning home late in the evening. Therefore, if I have an opportunity to attend competitions at that time, I will definitely be there," Azarov wrote.
The prime minister wished the members of the Ukrainian Olympic team success and victory.
