“While addressing the participants in the meeting, President of the Basketball Federation of Ukraine (BFU) Oleksandr Volkov said that Ukraine would fulfill all of its obligations related to the holding of EuroBasket 2015. According to him, this has been repeatedly emphasized by Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and the leadership of the Ukrainian government. Volkov said he was confident that participation in the project of experienced and energetic officials, particularly those who prepared [Ukraine] for Euro 2012 was an important pillar of our joint success,” the press service of the local organizing committee on preparations for EuroBasket 2015 reported.

The head of the organizing committee, Markiyan Lubkivsky, presented the state of preparations for the tournament.

He said in his presentation that the strategy of the tournament was based on the involvement of six Ukrainian cities, four of which have experience in Euro 2012, and that their infrastructure and accommodation capacities meet EuroBasket’s operational requirements.
