Eleven foreigners sought medical care over the whole period of the Euro 2012 European Football Championship in four host cities in Ukraine, Head of the State Sanitary and Epidemiological Service of Ukraine Anatoliy Ponomarenko has said.

"There were applications from 11 citizens over the period of the Euros in the four host cities... All of them received assistance and recovered. At the same time, the diagnoses were different and completely unrelated to each other," he said at a briefing on Wednesday.

Ponomarenko said that the service had no complaints about food institutions in the host cities.

"Our headquarters are operating in all host cities around the clock, no matter whether Euro 2012 matches are held or not. Constant work is being conducted as part of commissions set up in each of the host cities, therefore, the situation is completely under control," he said.

The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
