Swedish fans are making themselves at home at their camp on Trukhaniv Island in Kyiv and if necessary will be able to repair everything which needs fixing. "There were problems with the arrangement of this camp. Everyone knows that. But it seems that they are being solved. The restaurant will be set up today, it will work," the head of the organization of Swedish fans Camp Sweden, Ola Sjöstedt, said in Kyiv on Saturday.

According to him, a sufficient number of shower cubicles and toilets have already been installed.

"But this is in Swedes' nature to say: okay, there are thousands of people here, give us the tools and we will fix everything," he said.

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.
