Ukraine Ruled Out Of Hosting 2023's Eurovision Song Contest

Ukraine has been ruled out of hosting the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest amid the Russia invasion.

Traditionally, whoever won the competition hosts the event the following year, but the European Broadcasting Union released a statement saying it will conduct a 'full assessment and feasibility study' regarding 'safety and security issues'. 

The UK is being considered as the 2023 host after British singer Sam Ryder came second in the 2022 event.

The BBC said in a statement: "We have seen the announcement from the EBU. Clearly these aren't a set of circumstances that anyone would want. Following their decision, we will of course discuss the BBC hosting the Eurovision Song Contest."
