The past week has seen a war of words being thrown between Odessa and Kyiv, the two front-runners to host next years contest. Media in Odessa had reported that the contest would be awarded to their city on Monday, however these reports were false. While Kyiv has been vocal about its ability to host the contest to a higher standard than Odessa.
Dnipro which is the third city in the final phase of the bidding process, has been outspoken about their frustrations with the bidding process. The city officially remains in the running to host, however Zurab Alasania has stated that at this stage the competition is just between Odessa and Kyiv.
