Ukraine needs to develop a strategic plan to qualify for the Olympic Games.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy put the corresponding task, on July 16, during a conversation with Minister of Youth and Sports Ihor Zhdanov and President of the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine Serhiy Bubka on the territory of the State Enterprise Olympic Educational and Sports Center Koncha Zaspa.
“We need a plan, let’s say, that we are ready to build in 3-4 years and then we can get in line to host the Olympics. We must be ambitious,” the President stressed.
According to the Head of State, now we need to develop a sports infrastructure which can then be used for the Olympic Games.
“We should give a task to our guys who are looking for investments, give a task to our budget, to allocate money annually to the objects we need, and then will be used for the Olympics. At least, we must try to achieve this,” Volodymyr Zelensky said.
For his part, Serhiy Bubka noted that the upcoming Olympic Games for which Ukraine can apply is the 2030 Winter Olympics or the 2032 Summer Olympics.
At the same time, President of the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine noted that it will be more real if we host some of the following Winter or Summer Youth Olympic Games in our country.
