After Boris Johnson, UK Culture Secretary also wishes Ukraine hosts Eurovision 2023

After the EBU announcement that Ukraine is not able to host Eurovision 2023, talks began with BBC about hosting next year’s contest with Glasgow being the favorite to host the contest. However, there have been UK government officials who spoke against this decision, expressing their wish to see Ukraine being the host country.

During his arrival to UK after a meeting with the Ukrainian Prime minister, British prime minister Boris Johnson stated:

It is a year away, it is going to be fine by the time the Eurovision Song Contest comes round and I hope the Ukrainians get it”

On Saturday, the UK Secretary of State for Culture Nadine Dorries joined the list of UK politicians who want Ukraine to host the contest. After a meeting with her Ukrainian counterpart Oleksandr Tkachenko, she tweeted:

 

EBU is currently in talks with BBC and there is yet a decision to be made as for the hosting country for 2023. Stay tuned on Eurovisionfun for all the latest updates!
