National Olympic Committee official delegation visits the Ukrainian Institute ahead of 2012 London Olympics

With 500 days to go until the start of the 2012 games in London, an official delegation from Ukraine’s National Olympic Committee visited the Ukrainian Institute and commenced talks about cooperation and assistance during the London Olympics. The meeting was attended by the Ukrainian Ambassador in London, top executives from the Association of Ukrainians in GB, Ukrainian British City Club, Ukrainian Supports Club and Ukrainian students groups in the UK.

Initial issues discussed were how the Ukrainian organisations can assist the Olympic team in London, especially with premises for press conferences, events and receptions and also with supporters and volunteers.
