He said this at a meeting with Junior Eurovision 2012 winner Nastia Petryk.
Azarov said that after Petryk’s victory at Junior Eurovision 2012 the next contest should be held in Ukraine. The country has already submitted a respective application, and the result of its consideration will be announced in late January.
Azarov also proposed creating a public council that would deal with preparations for the contest, with the support of the state. He also asked well-known Ukrainian designer Diana Dorozhkina, who also attended the meeting, to submit proposals on the composition of the council, as well as to consider the involvement of sponsors in the organization of the contest.
