The decision to hold "Eurovision-2017" in Kyiv the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) should take at the General Assembly on 8 December.
It was reported that EBU has previously warned Kyiv about such a possibility because of bureaucratic delays, lack of attention to the preparation of the competition by the authorities.
