He added that this project must be implemented within a year.
“It is very important – and I want to emphasize this – that we honor the people who are still alive, who still have the opportunity today to receive the attention and respect of society and the State”, said the head of the OP.
He said these structures should become “magnets”, which will affect not only the development of sport in the region, but also spheres such as tourism.
“We are looking to the future. We hope that together we will overcome the epidemic and continue. Sport is an integral part of the life of Ukrainians, our athletes are admired all over the world,” said Yermak.
The head of the EP initiated the creation of a working group which will collect the proposals of the leaders of the regions concerning the objects to be included in the project and the names of the athletes for their celebration.

The Minister of Youth and Sports, Vadim Gutzeit, noted that without the development of the material and technical base, it is impossible to develop sport in the country. According to him, most sports schools for young people must now be rebuilt.
“If the children start playing sports, then in three to five years we will see them at the Ukrainian championships, on pedestals, and then they will be Olympians,” said the minister.
