7 thoughts on “ESC’17: EBU Rules That Russia Cannot Compete in Kyiv”

      1. For what should the EBU ban the Ukraine from the contest??? The EBU can only pass sanctions on their member broadcasters. But even if you disagree with decision of the Ukrainian authorities to ban Julia Samoylova from entering the country (which is my eyes right because who travels to Crimea via Russia supports their occupation of a foreign territory!), you still cannot blame the Ukrainian broadcaster for this!!

  1. I think the Ukrainian Security Service can judge the situation better than the EBU. I love you Ukraine and I love this desicion. It was just a stupid choice by Russia and they knew this would happen. It’s their own fault. Bye Russia, I will never miss you and I hope you will never come back. 🙂

  2. Why condemned only Ukraine? Russia should also take some blame for their choice of artist. After all, she was not chosen by a public vote but chosen on purpose to cause offence to Ukraine.

  3. Can’t believe that some people actually think that banning an innocent artist, who hasn’t done anything to harm anyone, is a good decision. Ukraine has sent political songs to the contest, and has thus used the contest as a political platform, including this year’s hullabaloo. Can’t agree with the EBU more!
