The Mayor of Irpin has stated an interest in bringing the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest to his city.
Irpin which is on the edge of Kyiv is one of nine cities to have expressed an interest in bidding to host this years contest. The official bidding process for the contest is set to get underway in the next few days. While Irpin has stated an interest in hosting the contest, it appears unlikely that the contest will be held outside of either Kyiv or Lviv. Irpin is unlikely to meet the criteria set out by the European Broadcasting Union for a host city.
