Sports become strong property sphere with law problems of its own which must be solved in civilized way. "Yuris" took part in the development of the new edition of the NOC statute, consulted in important questions of everyday activity. But work is going on: the foundation of sport law as the subject in Ukrainian universities is taken up, the creation of internal sport arbitration for solving disputes is demanded immediate action. The civilized disputes decision is a typical feature of a democratic state, its international image. That's the reason of significance of a qualified juridical basis in sport, in sport organizations activity. General Director of "Relcom-Ukraine" Mr. Oleksiy Bursuk said that "Relcom-Ukraine" tried to establish relations with the NOC as the leading sport organization of Ukraine. "High sport results is the shortest way to improve the image of our country, and internet is the best opportunity to light on sport information all over the world". The definite outcome may be observed during the cooperation of NOC and its internet service provider "Relcom-Ukraine" (since 28 July 2000). Together with the partner the NOC of Ukraine created its developing internet site, new projects are launched. Since 15 July 2000 new Olympic quiz is set up on the NOC of Ukraine official site under support of "Relcom-Ukraine". Site gets fresh outlook, new rounds-up are created.

The NOC of Ukraine highly estimates the opportunity of cooperation with such leading Ukrainian firms as "Yuris" and "Relcom-Ukraine". A lot is done, the results of cooperation are quite clear, and much more is planned - as it is important for future of Ukrainian sport. That is why the NOC hopes for long cooperation with already known partners and is ready for collaboration with new ones.
