Currently, a dispute regarding the area directly surrounding the International Exhibition Centre, the official venue for Eurovision 2017.
The dispute is between a Catholic church and the development of a residential project and involves the dimensions of the new construction.
Additionally, the potential area for the Opening Ceremony and Red Carpet is rumored to be St. Sophia’s Cathedral area. St. Sophia’s is an ancient religious and burial location in the heart of Kyiv. Critics have described this site as a potential venue for Eurovision 2017 as “blasphemous.”
