Euro 2012, the European Football Championship, will be held in Poland and Ukraine from June 8 to July 1, 2012.

All major national teams of Europe have already started preparations for the big event.

The host countries are also gearing up to welcome the teams with a lot of passion and enthusiasm. The organisers are even ready with 6,000 law enforcement officers and 2,000 health workers who can communicate with the guests in English.

Oleksandr Popov, Head of Kyiv City State Administration, claimed that Kyiv's preparations for Euro 2012 have been better than London's preparations for the Summer Olympics.

A government delegation headed by the Ukrainian vice-premier visited London in early February and met London Mayor, Boris Johnson.
