Uefa slams Ukraine ‘bandits’ for Euro 2012 hotel prices

13 April 2012

The president of Uefa has hit out at “‘bandits and crooks'” for the escalation of Ukrainian hotel prices ahead of the Euro 2012 football championships.

Speaking in Lviv, one of the venues, Michel Platini said the rising cost of accommodation worried him, and called on the authorities to prevent it.

He added that some hotels were not respecting room contracts which had already been agreed.

In response, Ukraine’s deputy prime minister pledged to take action.
