UK to host 2023 Eurovision instead of Ukraine

No prospect of the event going ahead in the war-torn country

25 July, 19:01
(ANSA-AFP) - LONDON, JUL 25 - Britain said Monday it had reluctantly agreed to take Ukraine's place as hosts of next year's Eurovision song contest after organisers said there was no prospect of the event going ahead in the war-torn country.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's spokesman said it was his "strong wish" for Ukraine, this year's winner, to host the 2023 edition and found it "deeply regrettable" that was no longer possible, with the BBC stepping in to host. (ANSA-AFP).
