Active NBU members

  • Flag of Armenia Armenia: ARMTV failed to make an announcement regarding their participation on time and were fined by the NBU.
  • Flag of Latvia Latvia: LTV originally announced the return of the country and hosted a national selection. However, the broadcaster attempted to cheat in the selection by changing the voting method after the voting started, in order to change the winner. Due to that, the NBU fined the broadcaster and forced the country to withdraw. Shortly after, a discussion about this situation between the NBU council and the Latvian Head of Delegation escalated, resulting in the HoD being removed from his position.
