"Our attitude towards Eurovision Song Contest remains unchanged. We have emphasised many times that this format is unbearable for us in terms of program but more importantly in terms of finance, similarly as for Czech Television which has five times higher budget than RTVS. The fact that this time the contest takes place in Vienna does not significantly change the high price of this project. RTVS strategically invest its limited resources into clear and defined program priorities (news, original played production, childrens´ production) and Eurovision Song Contest does not fit there."- official statement of management of RTVS.
We still hope that RTVS will change their decision. But, Slovak fans and members of OGAE Slovakia will be in Vienna
