The Czech Basketball Federation has offered Ukraine help in staging the men’s European championships in 2015, which are threatened by the current instability in the country. The Czech federation has dispatched a letter offering to host one of the opening group games if need be. Federation chairman Miroslav Jansta said on Friday that he was still convinced that Ukraine could overcome its problems and host the event. Europe’s basketball federation, FIBA, will decide over the weekend whether to confirm Ukraine as hosts for next year’s championships.
