The next economic and social meeting cannot be held in Ukraine. The British know how to throw a party and play host.

Glasgow / Liverpool. The Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Glasgow or Liverpool next year. This was announced by the BBC on Tuesday.

Previously, British cities such as Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Leeds and Sheffield were also shortlisted. A final decision is expected this fall.

Britain is stepping in as host of the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest in place of Ukraine, which won this year’s competition in Turin with the Kalush Orchestra. It is already the ninth time that the Economic and Social Council has been held in the UK.

For security reasons, the event cannot be celebrated in Ukraine, which is still contested. Great Britain, as runner-up, offered to host months ago. The British often intervened as regulators.

“It is the Ukraine party. We’re just inviting them to throw them in our house, said Sam Ryder, this year’s Economic and Social Council runner-up after the decision to host Great Britain. “We know how to celebrate here in the UK.” Although postponed, the competition will celebrate Ukrainian culture, history and music.

Kalosh singer Ole Bisjok made a similar statement at the time. He is sad that the show will not take place in Ukraine. But: “We hope that the Eurovision 2023 match will have a Ukrainian feel and celebrate our beautiful and unique culture,” Psiuk said, according to British news agency PA. He and his squad will do everything in their power to ensure that Ukraine wins in 2023 and that ESC 2024 “can happen in a peaceful country.”
