Ukraine spoke about the refusal of the "Eurovision"
Ukraine may give up the right to host the song contest "Eurovision" in another country the Finance Minister hinted that in the current economic situation to be very careful to spend money. To draw conclusions will be possible after the organizers put together a cost estimate. It is estimated that the contest would cost a billion hryvnia - about $ 40 million at current exchange rate.

"I encourage a sober assessment of the opportunities and benefits of "Eurovision" and I remind you that the project should be financially justified. One billion of hryvnias is a huge amount. In the end, the world knows five examples of the transfer of the right to host the contest. For example, France in 1960, handed him over to Britain," writes the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Finance Alexander danyluk in his column for "Economic truth"

We will remind, last Saturday in Stockholm was the final of the Eurovision song contest, the winner is named Ukrainian singer Jamala. This means that Ukraine had the honor to host the contest next year for the second time. "Eurovision" has passed in Kiev in 2005 after the victory of Ruslana.

Russia hosted Eurovision once in 2009, after the victory of Dima Bilan.
