Title: BBC Eurovision Sketch to Mock Ukraine?
Post by: David Rochlin on 21:50 09-May-2017
Apparently BBC will use a break usually filled with a host country performance to air a comedy sketch with the topic being sex trafficking/human trafficking.   The idea is to tell a story based on the film "Taken," but the police will wear real Ukrainian police uniforms.  Are they intentionally insulting, or just dense, or do they think this is some sort of just retributiion for the Russia/Yulia ban?
