Venue for Eurovision 2017 may be announced in a week
General Director of National Television and Radio Company of Ukraine Zurab Alasania has said the announcement of the Ukrainian city chosen to host Eurovision-2017 could be made in a week.
"The city (and place) of holding the contest has not yet been selected. Two of the three cities applying have significant advantages. Kyiv and Odesa are running neck and neck," he wrote on his Facebook page.
Alasania said that each of the city applicants has shortcomings. The working group of the organizing committee continues to study proposal submitted by the cities.
"One more week? The intrigue is completely in the spirit of Eurovision competition," he said.
As reported, Kyiv, Odesa and Dnipropetrovsk were qualified for the final of the contest to select a Eurovision 2017 host city.
The organizing committee of the contest was expected to announce the finalist on August 27, but the announcement was cancelled.
