Spain and RTVE offered themselves from the first moment to host the event but the organization has ruled it out
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) yesterday officially ruled out holding Eurovision 2023 in Ukraine due to the “current circumstances” in the country after the war and by not being able to ensure “the operational and security guarantees” required so that Ukrainian public television could hold music contest
The organizers made the decision a month after the triumph of the Kalush Orchestra, when President Volodymyr Zelensky expressed his interest in hosting the festival. Now, the EBU has begun talks with the BBC to bring Eurovision to the United Kingdom, a country that came in second place with candidate Sam Ryder.
Spain and RTVE offered themselves from the outset to host the event in the event that Ukraine could not. However, this option is already ruled out.
