Ukraine has allocated 120 million UAH for preparation of sportsmen for the winter Olympic games in 2018, said the head of the Department of winter kinds of sports Ministry of sports of Ukraine Danil Amirkhanov.

“We analyzed the performance of our athletes and divided them into three categories. The elite groups were 15 men as well as freestyler Alexander Abramenko. They get a lot more money on training than the other two groups: leading and promising. Just for winter sports , the state has allocated 120 000 000 UAH “, – he said.

However, 60 million UAH will be directed to the biathlon. D. Amirkhanov said the decision is fair, because in this sport, Ukrainians have the greatest success.

The rest will be distributed to other sports.
