POLTAVA - Ukraine's hosting of the Olympic Winter Games 2022 may give a powerful impetus to national development, Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov told students of the Poltava Institute of Law of the Yaroslav Mudry National Law Academy on September 22, 2012.
“It will not be easy to win the Olympic bid; we will have plenty of
serious rivals. Should we try? I think we should. Olympic Games are a
powerful incentive for national development,” he said.
“Knowledge of Ukraine is limited, and such events attract investments
and tourists. We will fight for hosting the Olympic Games, and we start
to prepare for that right now,” Azarov added.
