Russian performer Yulia Samoilova excluded from Eurovision after illegally performing in Crimea

Ukraine has forbidden Russia’s performance in Eurovision, but has given the country the permission to perform via satellite.


Yulia Samoilova, who was supposed to represent Russia in this year’s Eurovision in Kiev, is forbidden to enter Ukraine for three years as she illegally performed in Crimea in 2015. The organisers of the contest, European Broadcasting Union (EBU), criticizes Ukraine’s decision and emphasizes that Eurovision should remain a non-political nature event. The Russian performer will be allowed to participate via satellite.
