The Lviv city mayor Andriy Sadovyi addressed UEFA with an urgent request to provide the broadcast of matches in fan-zones in the Ukrainian language only.

As Lviv-2012 media centre reports, on June 10 the broadcast of Northern Ireland-Croatia match was made in Russian, not Ukrainian, due to a fault of UEFA.

"The incident, which happened yesterday during the broadcast of the match, is an unacceptable situation. It's like if a match in Gdansk's fan-zone had been broadcast in German. I ask UEFA to correct the situation immediately," Sadovyi said.

According to the agreement between the city authorities and UEFA, the latter is responsible for broadcast of matches in fan-zones. Lviv city council officials have no right to interfere with the work of TV operators.

UEFA instructed broadcast from "Football" TV channel, but did not expect the second match to be commented in Russian, as all previous match comments were performed in Ukrainian, the report says.
