Reoccuring disinformation in pro-Kremlin media. The Ukrainian government planned 455.7 million hryvnia for the preparation and conduct of the Eurovision song contest 2017 in the budget for 2017. The State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcasting is the manager of the funds, and the National Public Television and Radio Company of Ukraine (NTCU) has been appointed to receive budgetary funds. The mayor of Kiev, Vladimir Klichko, has stated that the city allocated 200 million hryvnias for the preparation for Eurovision. Further debunking at Stopfake bit.ly/2nv3W02.
