    The EBUís statement

    As a result of non-payment of debt, FYROMís public service broadcaster Macedonian Radio Television (MRT) currently does not have access to the EBUís Member services, including the Eurovision News and Sports News Exchanges, the right to broadcast specific sporting events, legal, technical and research expertise and lobbying services. MRT will also not participate in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest as things stand but will continue to take part in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in November.

    Well obviously they didn't otherwise they wouldn't have been banned. The EBU even said they can still participate if they pay their debts or renegotiate their debts in time, which obviously means they haven't paid any debts.

    Because Ingrid Deltenre(the main person behind late exclusion in 2016) is no longer the EBU General Director. Also the fact that the Macedonian government isn't ignoring the issue they just have other priorities and delayed increasing MRT funding until 2019.

    They have actually written about it:

    One of them even went to details:

    The thing is our participation is still possible so many outlets don't jump the gun and instantly say that we won't be taking part.
    We will have to wait for official news from MRT before we know if they can pay their EBU debt or not.

    That news was already announced before the weekend not?
    The esctoday article has other information. I only trust articles on the EBU or MRT site for this
