The Mayor Of Kiev Vitali Klitschko

As reported “MK”, with the victory in Stockholm Susana Jamaludinova (stage name Jamal) following a Grand musical the lists will be in one of the cities of Ukraine. First, the willingness to accept “the Eurovision”, said the mayor of Kiev, Vitali Klitschko, followed by a similar desire was voiced by the mayor of Odessa Gennady Trukhanov. Rather, the opinion of the Susana Alimony neither one nor the other was not interested.

Half an hour ago about their claims for the next holiday declared by the mayor of Dnepropetrovsk Boris Filatov. Among his arguments is the “heart of the Cossack land”, “the city with a Jewish soul”, “new home for 76 thousand immigrants from Ukrainian Donbass”, “the birthplace of the volunteer movement,” a unified command of local, regional councils and regional state administration”, “the strongest and largest of the national community”, “infrastructure”.

Tomorrow Boris Albertovich is preparing to send the corresponding appeal to the Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman.

I will remind: on the eve of the European Championship on football-2012 Dnipropetrovsk and Odessa had only the status of “reserve cities”. Then UEFA decided that the most prepared for such a serious “test of strength” are Kiev, Lviv, Donetsk and Kharkiv. These cities received substantial investment for many infrastructure projects.

Therefore it is not excluded that soon on the acceptance of “Eurovision” will be announced and yet the mayor of Kharkiv Gennady Kernes.

Opponents of the idea of competition in the City of Chiefs corrosive recalled in Facebook about the ongoing twinning Dnepropetrovsk to Samara and Krasnoyarsk. Boris Filatov recommend “something to do with it… one of the two…”.

However, the “sharp movements” in the direction of the rupture of friendly relations with the Russian megacities Dnepropetrovsk mayor may not be necessary.

The Minister of culture of Ukraine Yevhen Nyshchuk confidently predicts the transfer of the right to “Eurovision” to the capital. Specifically, the National sports complex “Olympic”. Goal de of Ukraine is to demonstrate “to go big, with all the infrastructure”. According to officials, preparations for the Grand musical competition will begin from tomorrow.
