One year has passed since the 2012 European football championship, but some of the Lviv-based contractors that built the infrastructure for the championship have still not received money for the work their work. The debt amounts to UAH 5 million, writes polskieradio.pl
The government has not yet paid the eight companies that built the new terminal at the Lviv airport. Having received no response to their appeals to the president and government of Ukraine and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), the builders are now threatening to organize protests.
The new airport terminal was built in connection with the Euro 2012 and opened in the presence of Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych in April last year.
"The Ukrainian authorities are not allowing foreign low-cost airline companies into the market in a bid to protect the interests of local carriers. Only one low-cost airline company presently operates airplanes in Ukraine,” writes polskieradio.pl
The passenger traffic at the Lviv airport increased by 94% to 576,000 passengers in 2012, compared with 2011. The new terminal at the airport was opened on April 12, 2012, the International Aviation and Cosmonautics Day. The Lviv airport was recently named the best airport in the CIS.
