Preparing for the big event...

This is the stadium hosting the 2012 European Championship final. It's estimated that €20b (€ are needed in investments over the next 5 years in order to host this event. And that's Ukraine alone.
Infrastructure such as roads, airports, public transportation, hotels etc. needs an update. I heard that 20 new hotels are needed in Kiev alone. I think Hyatt spend about 5 years constructing their new 5-starred hotel, and the building was already there... Someone needs to get busy!

But I think this is Ukraines BIG chance to show its potential. This can't be pulled off based on individuals. Everybody has to work together this time despite differences in "interests". Government, local government, businessmen, police force, fire department, hospitals etc. ALL of them has to look at this as a future opertunity for turning things around. It's NOT just another happening for making some quick cash!

Cheap cigarettes

YES, cheapest pack is about $0,15. They are probably made out of recycled pizza boxes. But it makes me wonder how profitable this business really is back west?
