Gaitana and Zukoski named Friends of EURO

Popular singer Gaitana and Jorge Zukoski, president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine, have been unveiled as the latest Friends of UEFA EURO 2012.

Gaitana, a popular Ukrainian singer and composer, and Jorge Zukoski, president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine, have been named as the co-host country's latest Friends of UEFA EURO 2012.

Ukrainian tournament director Markiian Lubkivskyi unveiled the duo on Saturday 2 July at the annual picnic organised by the Chamber of Commerce to mark United States' Independence Day.

"I'm really grateful to the Ukrainian local organising committee [LOC] for inviting me to join the exclusive group of EURO 2012 friends," said Gaitana. "Friends, you will never be sad with me," she promised after receiving her certificate of enrolment.

Zukoski, a well-regarded speaker at investment forums focusing on Ukraine, was equally delighted and promised to help promote Ukraine and UEFA EURO 2012 to the world.

Up to 100 people in Ukraine will be officially named as Friends of EURO, half of them public figures selected by the LOC, with the remaining spots already filled by the general public via competitions for people of all ages.
