Drinks bet lands Ukraine PM in trouble | Reuters

Football bet

Leading opposition deputy Mykola Tomenko, in a statement on an opposition party website, reminded the 64-year-old Azarov that drinking alcohol – even weak alcohol – was strictly prohibited on official premises.

“It is shameful and inadmissible when the leaders of the country contradict the law and the principles of defending morality by beginning to publicize consumption of strong drink during working hours and on state premises,” said Tomenko.

When the home team beat the Swedes 2-1, Azarov duly invited Sjostedt to sup a beer with him at government offices in Kiev.

A widely-distributed photograph showed the usually-dour white-haired prime minister smiling broadly, a Ukrainian football scarf round his neck, as he raised a pint of beer with his Swedish guest.

He said Azarov should pay a fine of 85 hryvnias ($10) – the usual level of punishment for an administrative offence – and he called on the Kiev police to take necessary action to see this was done.

With political infighting in Ukraine running at a high pitch, the opposition was quick to pounce.

KIEV It seemed a light-hearted gesture of soccer goodwill at the time, but a drinks bet Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov had with a Swedish fan at Euro 2012 has brought the wrath of the opposition down on him.
