Ukraine demands to reconsider the decision to hold Eurovision 2023

Ukraine does not agree with the statement of the European Language Union about the impossibility of hosting Eurovision 2023 in Ukraine and will demand that this decision be reconsidered. This was stated by the Minister of Culture Oleksandr Tkachenko.

-Ukraine does not agree with the nature of the adoption of such a decision – when we were presented with a fact without discussing the possibilities of other options. But he believes that he has every reason to conduct further negotiations and find a joint solution that will satisfy all parties. We honestly won Eurovision 2022 and met all the conditions within the specified timeframe regarding the process of agreeing to hold it in Ukraine – we provided answers and guarantees on safety standards and possible venues for the competition. We will demand to change this decision, because we believe that we will be able to fulfill all the obligations we have assumed, which has been repeatedly noted by the European Linguistic Union. Therefore, we demand additional negotiations on holding Eurovision 2023 in Ukraine,” Tkachenko said.

The Minister of Culture considers holding Eurovision in Ukraine a powerful signal to the whole world that he now supports our country.

Eurovision organizers said earlier that they had begun negotiations with the British broadcaster BBC, whose participant took second place. The Ukrainian group Kalush Orchestra won Eurovision 2022 with 631 points – 192 from the jury and 439 from the audience. This is the third victory of Ukraine in the competition. In 2004, Ruslana won with the song “Wild Dances”, and in 2016 – Jamala with the track “1944”.
