The next Eurovision Song Contest will not be held in Ukraine due to the war

The next edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, the most important and widely watched European music competition, will not take place in Ukraine as it should have been after the Ukrainian group Kalush Orchestra won this year’s edition. Traditionally, in fact, the competition is held every year in the winning country of the previous version, but on Friday, the organizing committee, namely the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), said that at the moment there are no conditions for the competition to take place in Ukraine safely due to the Russian invasion And the ongoing war. So the UK, which ranked second this year, could be the venue for the next edition. The European Broadcasting Union said it would discuss the matter with the BBC.
