Groysman confirms that Eurovision 2017 will be held in Ukraine

Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has confirmed that the country will be hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017. He reported this to 1+1 TV channel.

“There is no way that Ukraine will give up hosting Eurovision. I think that it is a big honor for us and we must make every effort to host the contest at a highly professional level,” he said.

The Ministry of Culture had previously estimated the cost of hosting the contest will be approximately €14.4 million.

The National Television has said that parts of the competition may be held in different Ukrainian cities. Because of this, Groysman wants to arrange inter-city competitions to host these sections of the contest.
