KIEV, June 7 (RIA Novosti)
Heavy rain flooded the Euro 2012 fan zone in the center of the Ukrainian capital Kiev, Ukrainian TV channel 1+1 has reported.
A heavy storm Wednesday evening caused water to collect in temporary buildings on the fan zone site after drains were unable to cope.
The fan zone is situated on and around the city’s central Maidan square, where protestors gathered in 2004 in protest at the disputed election of Viktor Yanukovich as president, which was later overturned by the courts.
A protest camp remains on the square, comprised of supporters of jailed opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko.
During the tournament, organizers hope that the Kiev fan zone will host tens of thousands of Ukrainian and foreign fans watching matches on big screens.

We have witnessed the total defeat of western Ukraine, Western nationalists and the West in general, which made the unfortunate decision to support the anti-government activity. They failed to realize that the collapse of Yanukovych means the collapse of Ukrainian unity. They set fire to their own home and planted a time bomb under Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
