Following the recent announcements by the Lviv and Kharkiv city councils, the Cabinet of Ministers of the Ukraine has announced that it is considering declaring national non-working public holidays on the dates of the upcoming Euro 2012 in the Ukraine.
As is usually the case (23-Apr-2012, 01-Mar-2012, 20-Jun-2011, 24-Feb-2011, 13-Aug-2010, 10-Dec-2008, 29-Nov-2007, and 23-Dec-2005), these one-off bridge public holidays would be compensated by declaring some Saturdays as regular working day in the Ukraine.
Last year (16-May-2011), the City Council of Ukraine's western city of Lviv (Lvov) announced plans to declare a non-working public holiday on Wednesday, June 13, 2012, the one European Football Championship 2012 game which will fall on a weekday.
However, more recently (11-Apr-2012), the Euro 2012 coordinator at Kharkiv City Council, Oleksandr Nechyporenko, announced that, for its part, none of the days when a Euro 2012 match occurs in Kharkiv in June 2012 would be declared a non-working public holiday.
