It is reported espreso.tv.
“SBU has not yet made a decision on ban entry to Ukraine of the singer Yuliya Samoylova – Russian representative at the Eurovision song contest. We will provide the conclusion. But first I would like to see the reaction of the organizers of the competition. I believe that the law is the same for all. Including for a singer with a disability, who competed in the annexed Crimea. If Samoylova really crossed the border of the occupied territory, that means she committed an administrative offense. This is the base to close the entrance”, – said Vasyl Hrytsak.
“Operational sources from Russia are reporting that the national stage of the competition there were other artists with vocal talent is not worse. But they somehow decided to choose a representative with a physical injury. It is a way to create a provocation. And look at our response,” he added.
