Recently, some British media have reported that the Donetsk football hooligans are supposedly preparing for clashes with the English fans, arriving in Donetsk for the match between Ukraine and the United Kingdom.
The interior minister said that the information covered by the British journalists does not reflect the actual situation. The Ukrainian fans are not radical about the arrival of foreigners and there are no leaflets referred to in the article.
"The Euro-2012 guests, coming from abroad to the mining capital of Ukraine, will enjoy calm and friendly atmosphere," the ministry spokesman said.
This information came after Donetsk had already held two matches of European Championship. The matches were attended by thousands of foreign visitors, including the English fans. They all have experienced warm welcome and hospitality of Donetsk, and witnessed no racism manifestations on the part of Ukrainian fans, the interior ministry spokesman underlined.
