The British government is making 3,000 Eurovision Song Contest tickets available to displaced Ukrainians after Kiev was unable to host it due to the Russian invasion.
The British government also announced it would provide £10 million in funding to support the Eurovision Song Contest in May, which the country hosted on behalf of Ukraine.
This year’s Eurovision contest will be hosted in Liverpool, northern England. Ukraine won the competition in 2022 and would normally have been the country to host it the following year. Britain took second place last year.
“Today’s announcement means thousands of tickets will be made available to those displaced by war so they can take part in an event that honors their homeland, their culture and their music,” said British Culture Secretary Lucy Fraser. “As always, we stand by the Ukrainian people and their struggle for freedom.”
