Eurovision - Talks For UK Contest 

 

 

 

 

 






The BBC is in talks with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) "to potentially host the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest" in the UK.
 

Ukrainian broadcaster AU: PBC said it was "disappointed with this decision". 

But the show's organisers concluded, after a "full assessment and feasibility study", that next year's event cannot be held in the winning country, Ukraine. 

This is due to the ongoing war following Russia's invasion. 

Traditionally, the winning country is asked to host the following year's contest. 

Reacting to the EBU's decision, Mykola Chernotytskyi, head of the managing board of UA: PBC, said: "During this month, a large number of people in Ukraine have thrown all their efforts to fulfil the conditions for holding Eurovision in our country. 

"Security is, of course, our first priority. The team of UA: PBC, state and local authorities did a thorough job and offered different options." 

He added: "It is a pity to see such an unappealable statement, therefore, we ask our partners to hold further negotiations."
