You're reading: Euro 2012’s death toll

One of the most overlooked costs, however, is the deadly price that the country paid for the three-week party. At least six people died and two were seriously injured while building two of the nation’s fanciest and most expensive stadiums – Olympic in Kyiv and Donbass in Donetsk.

For Tetyana Samoiluk, Euro 2012 was not a joy, but a reminder of her tragedy.

Samoiluk is from the small village of Kamyanka in Khmelnytsky Oblast. Her husband  Serhiy was killed building Olympic Stadium. Now, two years after his tragic death, she still cannot speak about what happened without tears.
