Russia: New Year national final cancelled


As expected due to the broadcaster’s silence, Russia won’t be choosing their entry on December 31st. Instead, the final will take place in March.

The song submission period will be open till February 28th.

The original plan was to introduce a new format called Kto?. 25 would have been competing in the New Year Eve’s final. Whether the final in March will be the same as was planned for this month is yet unknown.
