The organizers were and still are prepared in every way. The decision, however, results from the enormous difficulties, costs and risks that athlets from other countries would bear.
Many countries now have laws in place according to which, for example, health insurance "does not work" when a citizen has left "illegally" and then returns home. For example, if he is injured, he will have to pay for medical treatment. In addition, in many countries, compulsory quarantine awaits people returning from Ukraine. In addition, not home, but in a resort.
In a word - we still have to "wait it out".
If you stick to the deadline by force, it could be a bad situation that only a few national teams would take part in the European Championship.
