Ukraine envoy 'regrets' UK move on Euro 2012

08 June 2012 11:47

Ukraine's ambassador to London on Friday criticised a decision by British ministers not to attend group stage games of Euro 2012 because of concerns about "selective justice" in Ukraine.

"As far as that being a reason for not attending, this is something I don't understand since I believe that sport and politics, they don't mix," Volodymyr Khandogiy told BBC radio ahead of the tournament's first game.

"I definitely regret that they had chosen not to go and support at least morally their team in Ukraine."

In a statement Thursday, Britain's Foreign Office said ministers would not attend the group stages.
