President initiates establishing national soccer team support fund

"I believe that every citizen of Ukraine should be allowed to take part in the project, including the officials present here," said Viktor Yanukovych.

"I'm sure there is no person in this room, who would not dream of our national team’s victory," he added.

The President stressed that the government will do everything to prepare for Euro 2012 in Ukraine at the decent level. Yet, it is also important to remember that in the championship it is our team, which millions of Ukrainian fans want to see victorious. Therefore, President Yanukovych emphasized, the team must be well prepared for the championship, "just as fans dream about it.”
