A total of 21 members of the Committee appointed to the Organization of the Eurovision song contest in Kiev are resigned. This is apparent from a letter that the departed persons have written to the Ukrainian broadcaster NTU. Among the people who have taken resignation are also Oleksandr Kharebin and Victoria Roma nova, the proposed executive producers for the Eurovision song contest in Kiev.

In this letter, we read that since december no progression is posted after a new ‘ Main song festival ‘ has been appointed. This person has full control over everything what has to do with the festival. In the Ukrainian press we read that all works on the location, European club, tv production and many other things are quiet for months and there is still no signed contracts.
