Culture Minister: Ukraine Has No Concert Hall to Host Eurovision

Thursday, 30 June 2016, 08:21

Speaking on air on Channel 5, Culture Minister Yevhen Nyshchuk said that Ukraine lacks a concert hall ready to host Eurovision 2017, Interfax-Ukraine [ed.: the text of this hyperlink is in the Ukrainian language] reports.

"We don’t have an indoor stage to meet the requirements and host the necessary number of spectators," he says. Olimpiyskiy Stadium is an outdoor arena, and installing a cover would be technically challenging.

According to Nyshchuk, Lviv is considering to construct such a concert hall. "In fact, any big city including Kyiv needs such an arena. It would be a good venue to host big forums, concerts, performances," he added.

He believes that Kyiv can build a modern concert hall on the banks of the Dnipro.

Пане Нищук, то що ви пропонуєте? Може, віддати конкурс нашим козломордим братам? Де конструктив у вашій заяві?

А Палац Спорту, де проводили Євробачення 2005, розвалився? Чи вже не відповідає вимогам? Дивна новина

Нарешті здорова думка... Але ж за півроку таку арену не збудуєш, навіть у Китаї... А ще подумайте про ворога і терористів... Про інфраструктуру (лише Київ має досить якісних готелів)... Про дороги і транспорт... А головне ж - обійтися без трагедій і не перетворювати країну у посміховисько!
