Russia are not looking to withdraw from Junior Eurovision 2014. We have learnt that the Russian broadcaster is set to move the contest back from the relatively unknown children’s channel Carousel, to the Russia 1. We wrongly reported that Russia was looking at withdrawing from the contest after the reveal that viewing figures had fallen by over 11% to just 0.8%.
The news of the move came from a tweet by Junior Eurovision Press which said that:
we heard that instead they’d like to move it from a relatively unknown children’s channel back to the main channel again
This news means that it looks certain that Russia will continue to take part in Junior Eurovision 2014.
