Odessa is more prepared to host Eurovision 2017 than Kiev. This was during the briefing, which was broadcast “112 Ukraine”, said the Chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Michael Saakashvili.

He says that Kiev has hired lobbyists who are trying to take away the competition of Odessa, by spreading lies, in a partiality about what safer in Kiev than in Odessa.

“In Kiev are much nebezpecne than in Odessa. Lately there have been several terrorist attacks, including the murder of Pavel Sheremet. In Odessa since my arrival in RSA there have been no high-profile attacks,” – said Saakashvili.

He also claims that in Odessa better prepared object to the adoption of the competition.

“In Kiev offers to hold Eurovision in the Exhibition center. I played there in December – there is some empty walls. There are no make-up needed to the actors dressed. There is an equipped press center. At the stadium “Chernomorets” has got it all – I was 3 days ago at the concert of “Ocean Elzy”, which is perfect for this. Kiev Exhibition centre is generally good for nothing – there is no acoustics, “sports Palace” doesn’t work”, – Saakashvili said.
