French President declines attending Euro 2012

French President François Hollande will not leave for Ukraine to attend the UEFA Euro 2012 on June 8 because of the imprisonment of former PM Yulia Tymoshenko.

“I love football very much, but what has been going in Ukraine is a problem,” france24.com quotes Hollande.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel also declined attending the opening ceremony again due to Tymoshenko’s imprisonment
