Eurovision will be held in Britain next year - Ukrainian elements will be included in the program
Ukraine, which won the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, will go directly to the final next year, even if it does not organize the contest itself.
Next year's Eurovision will be held in Britain. The European Broadcasting Union EBU informs you about the matter.
Ukraine won the Eurovision Song Contest this year, but the organizers of the competition have announced that the Eurovision Song Contest cannot be held in Ukraine due to the Russian invasion of the country.
Britain finished second in this year's competition, so the EBU began discussions with the country's broadcaster, the BBC, about organizing visas.
It is not yet known in which city the visas will be held in Britain. However, at least Glasgow and Manchester have expressed their interest in hosting the Games.
According to the European Broadcasting Union EBU, the selection process for the five cities starts this week. Eurovision was last held in Britain in 1998, at that time in Birmingham.
The Eurovision host country traditionally goes directly to the finals. Now, as the previous year's winner, Ukraine also goes directly to the finals, even if it does not organize visas.
According to the EBU, Ukrainian elements will be included in the British Eurovision Song Contest. They are to be planned together with the Ukrainian Broadcasting Company.
Ukraine's Kalush Orchestra won the Eurovision Song Contest in May with the song Stefania. Second place came from Britain's Sam Ryder with the song Space Man.
