Lviv is planning to compete for hosting the 2028 Winter Youth Olympic Games and the 2030 Winter Olympic Games. The city will start preparing the bids in 2020, its mayor Andriy Sadovyy has said at a briefing with the president of the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine, Serhiy Bubka.
Bubka, for his part, said that Lviv could have applied for the 2022 Olympics, "if not for the war".
"It is not an easy work but we have enough time to plan everything and build the necessary infrastructure. Those who do not dream do not win. So let us work and move in this direction," he added.
