Prostitution Not
Keiv (Ukraine) , Dec 3: Five activists from Ukraine's Femen women's right group staged a strip demonstration at Keiv's Olympic Stadium to protest against Uefa for encouraging the legalisation of prostitution during the 2012 European Championship, which kicks off in June, 2012.

Femen spokeswoman Inna Shevchenko said that UEFA is "trying to influence our government" to legalize prostitution during the June 8-July 1 tournament. UEFA is making the draw on Friday (Dec 9).

Demonstrators at the event carried banners with the slogan 'Euro 2012 without prostitution'. However, the protest was short lived as police arrived soon after it began, and dragged the women away. Members of the Femen group are famous for staging naked protests in Ukraine and abroad.
