MusicUkraine is considering organizing the Eurovision Song Contest in three different regions next year. Broadcaster UA: PBC, which will be organizing the event, announced this on Wednesday.
Ukraine won this year’s Song Festival. Therefore, in principle, the next version should now take place in the war-torn country. The country has officially started preparations for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest this week. An organizational committee was formed and approved.
“Yesterday we filled out a questionnaire to host the Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine with the European Broadcasting Union,” said Oleksandr Tkachenko, Minister of Culture of Ukraine. “Within a very short period of time, the government has been able to provide adequate and comprehensive answers.”

Tkachenko promises that the state will fulfill its obligations to the organization. “We have provided detailed answers to security questions and other organizational nuances and have proposed different sites,” the minister said. “We understand that under the current circumstances, we are faced with the challenge of organizing the Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine. But we have risen to this challenge and I am sure we will surprise everyone.”
Despite the war with Russia, Ukrainians have been serious about organizing a song contest in their country since the Kalush Orchestra’s victory in Turin last month. Several countries have recently offered to help Ukraine organize or take over the entire event.
