RUSSIA fuori dall’Eurovision Song Contest 2022
Scritto da Newsic.it il 25/02/2022
L’EBU, ovvero l’European Broadcasting Union, ha comunicato che la Russia è ufficialmente estromessa dall’Eurovision Song Contest 2022 che si terrà a Torino dal 10 al 14 maggio 2022.
L’Ucraina aveva chiesto all’EBU di escludere la Russia dall’Eurovision Song Contest 2022. La risposta è stata inizialmente negativa, ma il 25 febbraio, dopo un’ampia consultazione, l’Executive Board dell’EBU ha annunciato che la Russia non parteciperà all’Eurovision 2022.
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has announced that no Russian act will participate in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
The Executive Board of the EBU made the decision following a recommendation earlier today by the Eurovision Song Contest’s governing body, the Reference Group, based on the rules of the event and the values of the EBU.
The Reference Group recommendation was also supported by the EBU’s Television Committee.
The decision reflects concern that, in light of the unprecedented crisis in Ukraine, the inclusion of a Russian entry in this year’s Contest would bring the competition into disrepute.
Before making this decision the EBU took time to consult widely among its membership.
The EBU is an apolitical member organization of broadcasters committed to upholding the values of public service.
We remain dedicated to protecting the values of a cultural competition which promotes international exchange and understanding, brings audiences together, celebrates diversity through music and unites Europe on one stage.
