UEFA criticized for choosing St. Petersburg to host Euro 2020

UEFA is criticized for choosing St. Petersburg as one of the thirteen host cities of Euro 2020.

Also there are calls to verify the circumstances of providing Russia or Russian cities with the ability to host important sport events.

It is reported by Deutsche Welle.

In 2020, the European Football Championship will be held not in one, but in 13 countries. The matches will be held in the Russian St. Petersburg too. This UEFA decision adopted last Friday attracted loud criticism.

"Russia is showing aggression regarding neighboring Ukraine. But Russia also violated the rules of the international federations by integrating the Crimean clubs into their national championship. It was a sufficient reason not to allow St. Petersburg hosting Euro 2020 matches", said Rebecca Harms, the leader of the Greens/European Free Alliance.
