The Ukrainian authorities announced their readiness to receive a representative from Russia at the Eurovision-2017 contest in the event that Samoilovu will be replaced by another contestant who has no problems with Ukrainian legislation. This was reported by Vice-Premier of Ukraine Vyacheslav Kirilenko, whose press service published his words, said on the air of “Ukrainian Radio”.
“Of course, we are ready to receive all 43 participating countries of Eurovision, including a representative from Russia, Russia can find a way out of this situation by offering a participant or a participant who has no problems with Ukrainian legislation. This problem will be solved very quickly, “Kirilenko said.
At the same time, the Deputy Prime Minister noted that Kiev hopes that Moscow will accept such conditions. The situation around the contest Kirilenko described as a provocation by Russia.
We see that provocation with “Eurovision” by Russia is only a small link in a large chain of provocations and actions that are aimed at forcing the situation in Ukraine, “the Ukrainian politician said.
Samoylova was supposed to represent Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with the song “Flame Is Burning”, but she was banned from entering the territory of Ukraine because of her performance in the Crimea.
