Prime Minister Mykola Azarov and head of the Kyiv City State Administration Oleksandr Popov laid a commemorative capsule into the base of the sports center "Kyiv-Arena", which is being built to hold the finals of the European championship in Basketball 2015, ForUm correspondent reports.

"Construction of a large multi-purpose sports and entertainment complex, which Kyiv needs so much, has been launched. Such complexes, which are to be built in almost all major cities, could become the centers of conduct of sporting and cultural events, concerts, scientific conferences ... It is important that this complex will be built at the expense of investment funds without raising budgetary resources," Azarov noted.

In turn, Popov guaranteed investors the maximum support for this project.

Also present at the ceremony, director of the local organizing committee of the European Basketball Championship Markiyan Lubkivsky said that "Kyiv-Arena" is one of the platforms, on which the EuroBasket finals could be held.

"FIBA is rather confused. We will have so many good objects that it is perhaps even more than is necessary for the tournament. But it's a good thing - competition is always important," he noted.

Lubkivskyy promised to conduct an impartial monitoring of construction of all sports arenas in Ukraine on the eve of Eurobasket.

In turn, representatives of builders reported that construction of the facility will be completed in November 2015. According to them, more than 1 billion UAH are raised for the project.
