Ukrainian Policemen to Ride Bicycles and Horses for Euro-2012
Donetzk policemen will patrol the streets on bikes and horses during the European football championship, according to the Ukrainian Interior Ministry. The aim of this change (previously policemen – known in Ukraine as ‘militia men’ drove cars for patrolling duties) is to reduce congestion and improve the city’s environment. Although at the moment, the new arrangement is to last only through the championship, plans are being developed to make it a permanent arrangement.
