The singer called on the world to prove that she believes in Ukraine.
Ukrainian singer Ruslana Lyzhychko was unable to attend the action, the purpose of which was to call for giving Ukraine a chance to host Eurovision 2023. It turns out that she broke her leg, and therefore did not get into the epicenter of events.
At the same time, Ruslana recorded a video message in which she called on the world to prove that it believes in our country.
“Mariupol, Azovstal demonstrated the real heroism of Ukrainians. That is why Eurovision should be held in Ukraine next year. It should be so right! It means that you believe in Ukraine, that we can. We will win together. So give us chance,” Ruslana said.
As a reminder, the European Broadcasting Union stated on June 17 that Eurovision Song Contest 2023 impossible to hold in Ukraine, so their representatives turned to the UK, because they took second place this year.
The BBC is in talks with the European Broadcasting Union to host the event. The move would be a break from the tradition of hosting the next year’s event in the winner’s country.
Minister of Culture and Information Policy Oleksandr Tkachenko said that Ukraine does not agree with the nature of the decision of the EBU regarding the impossibility of holding International Song Contest “Eurovision-2023” in the country.
