KIEV, June 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s basketball federation has not been informed yet on a decision to take next year's continental championship away from the country.
FIBA Europe, the continental governing body, said Friday that its board had decided that Ukraine was not fit enough to host the 2015 European men's basketball championship because of the continuing instability in the country.
“We have received no information on the FIBA Europe Board’s decision. That is why we make no comments yet,” Anna Poligenko, a spokeswoman for the Ukrainian basketball federation, told ITAR-TASS.
She said the Ukrainian basketball federation’s board was currently in Munich to negotiate a decision on the EuroBasket 2015 hosting issue with the FIBA Europe Board.
The decision to move the tournament out of Ukraine was announced three days after Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk hosted FIBA Europe President Turgay Demirel and Secretary General Kamil Novak to discuss hosting plans.
Among the planned Ukrainian host cities for the September 2015 tournament were Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk and Kharkiv in volatile eastern Ukraine.
