After winning the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) in May, the European Broadcasting Union explored the possibility of organizing next year’s competition with Ukrainian public broadcaster UA:PBC, which previously hosted events in 2017 and 2005.
It has become a well-known tradition that the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest organizes the competition the following year, provided certain criteria are met, including ensuring the continuity of the event and the safety of all involved, including the public.
Given the ongoing war since the Russian invasion of the victorious country this year, the European Broadcasting Union took the time to fully assess the feasibility of hosting the event in Ukraine. American University Specialists: The PBC and third parties participated in the analysis. Safety and security issues were raised.
The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the most complex television productions in the world, with thousands of people working and participating in an event that takes 12 months to organize.
After an objective analysis of the ESC Board of Directors, we deeply regret that, in the current circumstances, the security guarantee required by the broadcaster for the organization and production of the Eurovision Song Contest cannot be provided in accordance with ESC regulations.
The European Broadcasting Union thanks UA:PBC for their sincere cooperation and commitment to researching all scenarios since the Kaloch Orchestra’s May 14 victory in Turin. We share our sadness and disappointment that next year’s competition cannot be held in Ukraine.
The European Broadcasting Union has supported the African Union: Peacebuilding Commission in many different areas since its conquest. We will ensure that this support continues so that the African Union: Peacebuilding Commission can maintain the essential services it provides to Ukrainians.
As a result of this decision, in line with the rules and in order to ensure the continuity of the event, the European Broadcasting Union will now begin talks with the BBC, the general name of Great Britain, and this year’s runner-up. He is a potential host for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest.
Our intention is that Ukraine’s victory will be reflected in next year’s performances. This will be a priority for us in our discussions with potential hosts.
