The European Broadcasting Union admit the possibility of introducing sanctions against Russia and Ukraine for violating the statutes. Eurovision Song Contest Reference Group chairman Frank-Dieter Freiling told that in his interview to German Heute.

“It’s been the ongoing drama of Eurovision 2017 and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon. Eurovision Song Contest Reference Group chairman Frank-Dieter Freiling has told German media that it is likely that both the Ukraine and Russian broadcasters will have sanctions brought against them — and that could mean a ban for up to three years.”

The reference group will discuss the matter of both Ukraine and Russia at their meeting next week. Then a formal notice will be made at the reference group meeting on 12 June.

Freiling didn’t specify the form of the sanctions, but said that the statutes provide a range of restrictions and penalties from a fine, the withdrawal of sponsor’s funding, to a suspension of up to three years.
