The Ukrainian Government has tasked to secure broadcasting the Euro2012 finals via a Ukrainian satellite, director general of the National Space Agency Yuriy Alekseyev said.

Creating the space segment of the national satellite communication system will cost Ukraine some 200 million USD. Some 30-35% of the project's cost will be financed from the budget to use the satellite for the demands of the Defense Ministry, Transport and Communication Ministry, Emergency Management Ministry and other state bodies. The rest of the money is supposed to be raised from investors, Alekseyev said.

Through 2010 a spacecraft Lybid, a central station of space communication and a station of managing and accepting telemetric information are supposed to be created. The satellite is expected to be launched in 2010 - early 2011, Cabinet’s press office reports.
