Head of Edinburgh International Book Festival urges city to reclaim global culture…

What a fabulous night. So close for the amazing @SamRyderMusic but with #Ukraine in the lead, it’s still a wonderful result, she said.

Scottish TV presenter Lorraine Kelly posted a message to Russian President Vladimir Putin: Congratulations UKRAINE, go ahead Putin and our @SamRyderMusic made us proud.

Ryders’ placement marks the first time in 20 years that the UK has broken into the top three, clinching the spot with his pop song Space Man.

Katrina Leskanich, who sang the latest winning UK entry, Love Shine A Light by Katrina and the Waves, tweeted: Kudos to Sam Ryder what a fantastic result for #UK.

Actor John Barrowman tweeted: Congratulations on #Eurovision 2nd place #samryder because of you and the song #Spaceman UK is back in the game.

Former Bucks Fizz winner Cheryl Baker tweeted: Wasn’t this the best @Eurovision in years?

Not just because the brilliant @SamRyderMusic came in 2nd, but it was a show of love, joy, inclusivity and lack of animosity.

Meanwhile, defiant Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has pledged to one day host the Eurovision Song Contest in the beleaguered city of Mariupol, which is almost entirely in Russian hands except for a loyal group of a few hundred Ukrainian fighters who continue to hold in a steel factory.

Our courage impresses the world, our music conquers Europe, said Mr. Zelensky on Facebook. Next year, Ukraine will host Eurovision.

Mr. Zelensky added that one day the competition will take place in a Ukrainian Mariupol.

The president’s optimistic words come as Russian troops withdraw from Kharkiv, the country’s second-largest city, after shelling it for weeks, and forces in Moscow continue to engage in a fierce battle for the industrial heart of the east of the country.

The Ukrainian military said Russian forces were now withdrawing from the northeastern city to focus on protecting supply routes, while launching mortar, artillery and air strikes in the eastern region of Donetsk with the aim of exhausting the Ukrainian forces and destroying the fortifications.

Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov said Ukraine was entering a new long-term phase of the war.
