In its online report on Tuesday evening, March 28, Blick said the EBU was ready to impose sanctions on Kyiv over an entry ban against Russia's act Yulia Samoylova, citing the union's director general.
Earlier, Deltenere did criticize the Kyiv's decision.
Blick argued that if the situation did not change in the coming weeks, Ukraine would be sanctioned right up to a suspension from the competition.
However, on Wednesday, the EBU told journalists it was not ready to confirm the possibility of sanctions against Ukraine.
As previously reported, Yulia Samoylova was supposed to represent Russia at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv with the song Flame Is Burning. The singer is known to have given concerts in occupied Crimea.
The foreign minister of Ukraine said such a decision of the Russian Federation was yet another provocation. Russia, in turn, claimed it saw nothing provocative in picking Samoylova for the contest.
March 20, the Security Service of Ukraine issued an entry ban against the Russian singer.
