«We understand those passions and emotions, which creates competition. And in light of this, we decided to consider your petition and respond to it, “- said in the EBU statement
Organizers of the” Eurovision “was reminded that this competition, which can only be one winner. and expressed understanding that not everyone may agree with the outcome of this year, having decided that the refereeing was subjective.
«Ukraine has been and will remain the winner in 2016.
Do you agree or not, we encourage those who signed the petition, accept the result obtained in accordance with the rules, and to continue a constructive dialogue on how to improve the “Eurovision”, – concluded the EBU <. / p>
In principle, the answer to this, it was clear that the results of “Eurovision” will be abolished not (about once warned a spokesman for EBU Paul Jordan). So the contest in 2017 will take place exactly in the Ukraine – though it is unclear in what city and what site. Who initiated the “Eurovision-2017″ made by several cities, including Odessa, Lviv and Dnipropetrovsk.
However, the most obvious candidate is Kiev, which has already hosted the competition in 2005.
There are a few outstanding issues of the future of “Eurovision”. For example, if the Ukrainian authorities to allow the Russian delegation, if someone is out of it will be included in the black list of people, threatening the security of Ukraine. However, the EBU has already spoken on this subject is quite specific: to determine who to send to the competition can only participating country. Iosif Kobzon, who was included in such a list, expressed his wish to speak on the competition and to sing a song in the Ukrainian language.
In addition, there is also the problem of financing. The cost of the “Eurovision” vary widely (in 2012, Azerbaijan spent $ 64 million, setting an absolute record), but the representatives of Ukraine have said they expect to spend a much smaller amount. However, in the budget it is not, and the Ukrainian organizing committee expects to attract sponsor funds.
