Britain vowed to reflect Ukrainian culture during Eurovision
The UK has promised that it will try to reflect the richness of Ukrainian culture in preparation for Eurovision 2023. It is reported by The Daily Telegraph.
“If the European Broadcasting Union decides that the competition cannot be held in Ukraine, we would certainly welcome the opportunity to work closely with Ukraine and the BBC to bring it here in the UK. But we are committed to ensuring that the festival reflects the rich culture, heritage and creativity of Ukraine, and also builds on the ongoing partnership between our two countries,” said a spokesman for the Office of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson.
The last Eurovision was won by representatives of Ukraine Kalush Orchestra. In the final of the competition, which was held in Turin, Ukrainian musicians scored 631 points – at the end of his performance, one of the group members asked for help to Ukraine and specifically to the Azovstal plant in Mariupol.
Earlier on Friday, June 17, it became known that the European Broadcasting Union came to the conclusion that the current circumstances do not allow to fulfill “the guarantees of security and operation, which, according to the rules, are necessary for the broadcaster to conduct, organize and produce the Eurovision Song Contest”. In this regard, the event will be held in the UK.
