You're reading: Ukrainian police have no information on planned racist provocations during Euro 2012

Ukrainian law enforcement agencies are investigating allegations that racist and Nazi-style provocations are being planned for the Euro 2012 European Football Championship. There has been no confirmation of these reports.

"We have a sufficient number of police officers to properly respond to all reports. The information voiced [about possible racially-motivated provocations and disturbances] is being checked. Currently we have no such data that mass disturbances or provocations are being planned against dark-skinned people," the Ukrainian Interior Ministry’s Public Safety Department Head Serhiy Pohotov told a press conference on Wednesday.
