KIEV, April 17 (Xinhua) -- Ukraine faces a low risk of terror attack during Euro 2012 Soccer Championship, a Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) official said here Tuesday.

"Today the threat is minimal. This is an official statement to anyone who is hearing me," the first deputy head of the SBU, Peter Shatkovsky said during Presentation of Staff to ensure international cooperation and coordination of security measures on preparation and holding Euro 2012.

Shatkovsky, who is also the head of Ukraine's Anti-Terrorist Center in SBU, noted that the service is working to anticipate possible extremist terrorist acts and eliminate them.

Ukraine's security staff is cooperating with foreign counterparts to tackle possible terrorist attacks during the 16-nation tournament which starts in June, Shatkovsky said.
