The Cabinet of Ministers of the Ukraine, as had been expected, has adopted a resolution declaring municipal non-working public holidays in 4 different cities where Euro 2012 finals will occur in June 2012.

Last year (2011-05-16), the City Council of Ukraine's western city of Lviv (Lvov) had 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.

Then, 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.

Then, last month (2012-05-01), to avoid contradictory and confusing municipal public holidays, the Cabinet of Ministers of the Ukraine had announced that it was considering declaring national non-working public holidays on the dates of the upcoming Euro 2012 in the Ukraine.

The municipal public holidays will be in Donetsk (June 11, 15, 19, and 27), in Kyiv (June 11, 15, and 19), Lviv (June 13), and Kharkiv (June 13). As is usually the case (2012-05-30, 2012-04-23, 2012-03-01, 2011-06-20, 2011-02-24, 2010-08-13, 2008-12-10, 2007-11-29, and 2005-12-23), these one-off public holidays will be compensated by the same number of Saturdays having been declared regular working days in the corresponding Ukrainian cities.
