The Russian Federation has not taken a decision to boycott the song contest Eurovision, which will take place in Ukraine, although the authorities have some concerns considering the venue. This was stated by presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov, Interfax reports.
"The Kremlin is not in favor of a possible boycott. Russia is not clear whether the Eurovision needs to be boycotted", he said, stressing that the Kremlin did not accept any decision in this regard.
Peskov admits that Moscow has some concerns because of the venue of the competition.
"Of course, taking into account the venue of the competition, there can be possible problems with safety and unfriendly attitude, so some cause for concern is obvious", he said.
Note, previously the State Duma Deputy from United Russia Vitaly Milonov addressed to the Director General of Channel One Konstantin Ernst with a request not to send the Russian participants to the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv and do not carry out the broadcast of the event.
