Donetsk, Ukraine Rebrands and Develops to Increase Its Euro 2012 Readiness

20. July 2010 by Gregg 0 Comments

The city of Donetsk itself is reportedly going under a “rebranding effort”. City officials have hired Russian designer Artemy Lebedev to design a logo and a website for the city. Further changes and renovations to the city’s infrastructure are also expected. These are coming not long after the opening of Donbass arena last August, another of the city’s additions built in preparation for the upcoming UEFA Euro 2012 Tournament to be co-held in Ukraine and Poland.

The good news for Gentlemen wishing to visit Ukrainian ladies in the Donetsk area is that due to the needs of the International community during Euro 2012, many of the smaller airports in Ukraine have been expanding to include more terminals and ramps, and Donetsk International Airport (pictured) is set to officially open their new runway and terminal by the autumn.

Donetsk International Airport originally opened in the 1940’s and was heavily rebuilt and renovated in the 1970’s. The airport has previously accepted flights from other cities as diverse as Munich, Moscow and even Tel Aviv, but the new terminal will allow even more connections.  The terminal had been temporarily delayed through the winter due to the weather, which caused some tension over Ukraine’s readiness to host the games, but as of recent reports, work had continued and completion was back on schedule.
