This Wednesday, March 22, it became known the final decision of the Council of Ukraine regarding Yulia Samoilova, who this year is going to represent Russia at “Eurovision”. The participant of the song contest from Russia will not be able to cross the territory of Ukraine for three years. The decision to the SBU explained the violation of Ukrainian legislation by Samoilova.
The European broadcasting Union, the main organizer of this song contest, decided not to stand on the protection of the Russian participants of “Eurovision – 2017”. In its statement, the EBU has expressed concern over the decision of the official Kyiv, which is contrary to the spirit of the competition . However, the organizers decided not to intervene, explaining its position with respect to the Ukrainian legislation.
Member of the public chamber of the Russian Federation and the famous singer Diana Gurtskaya urged Kiev not to mix music with politics. According to public figure, representatives of the SBU made an illegal and cynical decision. She also believes that Ukraine should not host the competitions of this format, because the government endorses these decisions.
Music producer Iosif Prigozhin proposed to refuse participation in the Eurovision song contest if EBU will not affect Kiev.
