Ukraine will make decision on which city will host the Eurovision 2017 until the Independence Day on Agusut 24. The National Television Company of Ukraine (NTCU) Deputy Director General Alexander Harebin stated this, Unian reports.

Three cities compete to host the international song contest – Kyiv, Dnipro and Odesa. However, as the organizers say, every city has a number of disadvantages.

"Ukraine has virtually no arena stage on which the competition can be carried out. That is why we could not choose the host city earlier", Harebin said.

"The presence or the need for the competition was due to the fact that we did not see the readiness of the arena. We would like to see the city's interest in the competition", he added.
