YleX host Miikka Koivisto made a surprise speech on live broadcast and announced yesterday Tuesday that she was resigning from her job for political reasons. Kovisto managed to host a show in less than six years on the channel.

Kovisto justified the matter to listeners by saying that he disapproved of Yle’s participation in Eurovision.

– I am resigning in protest against Yle’s participation in this year’s Eurovision in collaboration with Israel, which is committing genocide in Palestine.

– This year’s Eurovision serves as a polishing platform for the image of the country of Israel, which is still doing terrible things. More than 30,000 people were killed was not reason enough to exclude Israel from the games, he continued.
