On 14th May 2022, Ukraine won the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, Italy. The overwhelming public support for the country’s entry represented a moment of unity in an event which, although originally set up to promote peace in Europe, has long offered a reflection of regional rivalries.

Having carefully mapped historical support between Eurovision countries, our map above – taken from our infographics book An Answer For Everything – redraws the geopolitics of the continent and exposes the power-trading that goes on annually in deciding which nation will host next time round. But what does it reveal about real-world national rivalries and affiliations? We’ll leave that to you to decide.
