National TV and Radio company lacks money for Eurovision
May refuse the direct broadcasting of the contest
The National TV and Radio Company of Ukraine (NTKU), due to its financial problems, is not able to help the Ukrainian participant of Eurovision-2009, Svitlana Loboda, and even may refuse the direct broadcasting of the contest.
NTKU top vice-president Roman Nedzelskiy claimed this to a press conference on Thursday, RIA Novosti reported.
Besides, according to R.Nedzelskiy, due to the lack of financing, a group of Ukrainian journalists of the First National Television (subject to NTKU) may fail to attend the contest in Russia.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Eurovision-2009 song contest will take place in Moscow in May. Ukraine will be represented by singer Svitlana Loboda, who will perform on May 14 in the second semi-final.
