The game was to be held July 29 at FC Dnipro’s home stadium.
The club said in a press release that the game would be held in Kiev or in the Western city of Lviv. A decision on the venue is to be taken Wednesday.
A return game will be played August 5 in Copenhagen.
UEFA earlier turned down the Danish club’s request for transferring the game to a neutral territory. A statement at FC Copenhagen’s official website said it could not charter a flight to Dniptopetrovsk, as European airlines were refusing to fly over the Ukrainian territory after last Friday’s crash of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 in the much-troubled Donetsk region.
For the reasons that are still unclear it was diverted from its usual route to the zone of fighting between the self-defense forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics and the Ukrainian government forces. The crash killed all the people aboard.
On the same day, a number of major international airlines took decisions on changing the routes so as to bypass Ukraine’s territory.
Last Saturday, Ukraine’s state aviation service fully closed the airspace over the Donetsk and Luhansk regions and partly over the Kharkov region for commercial aviation flights.
