The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has intent to allocate 275 million hryvnias to reconstruct the landing strip of Zaporizhzhya airport, within frames of the national target program of preparing to host EURO-2012.

According to the Zaporizhzhya Oblast State Administration’s press-service, the airport was included into the list of reserve airports to receive planes with tourists during the European Football Championship. They also plan to finance reconstruction of the apron for planes.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko claimed it is necessary to immediately reconstruct the landing strip of the Zaporizhzhya airport after her plane landed there on June 12. “I nearly lost all my teeth [during the landing]”, the Prime Minister stressed.
