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.

Last year (2011-05-16), 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 (2012-04-11), 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.
