11:52 – Favorite Ukraine, is it guaranteed to win?
Since its invasion by Russia, Ukraine has been a favorite according to bookmakers. It must be said that geopolitics often gets involved in singing contests. Punters estimate that the country represented by the Kalush Orchestra Group has a 59% chance of gaining the symbolic support of voters, ahead of the United Kingdom (11%) and Sweden (9%). But 20 Minutes teaches us, experts in support, that nothing is predetermined and that a complex geopolitical context does not necessarily ensure the victory of the country concerned. Indeed, Ukraine has already scored a small victory as Russia was knocked out of the competition shortly after Vladimir Putin’s troops invaded the country.
