The Government of the United Kingdom has announced that there will be 3,000 Eurovision tickets available for displaced Ukrainians in the UK. This year’s Eurovision Song Contest is a joint venture of the United Kingdom and Ukraine, because the latter was last year’s winner, but due to the ongoing war with Russia the country cannot organize the contest on home soil.
