Dear Mr. Michel Platini:
The image of the Union of European Football Associations, which is holding its 2012 championships in Ukraine and Poland next year, may suffer an irreparable blow – all due to the developing scandal around ProstoPrint, a popular Ukrainian printing company which applies images on souvenir products and clothes.
On Sept. 6, the company’s activity was paralyzed as a result of a raid by Ukrainian militia authorities at its office. Equipment was seized. Criminal proceedings were launched against employees. They are accused of illegally using the Euro 2012 logo on t-shirts and clothing.
