Russian singer Yulia Samoylova, who will participate in the Eurovision song contest from the Russian Federation, will go through a security check, as Russia regularly provocations against Ukraine. This was stated by Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin, reports Liga.net.
He did not rule out that the appointment of the singer as a contestant from Russia is a provocation of the Russian side.
“SBU check it, there is a statement (question about the Russian candidate for the Eurovision song contest Julia Samoilova, ed.). I believe that the law should be the same for everyone. Russia for many years engaged in provocations,” – said Klimkin.
As it became known, Russia at the international musical contest Eurovision-2017, which will be held in Kiev, will present the singer with disabilities Yulia Samoilova.
The security service of Ukraine will check the accuracy of the information about possible visit of Russian singer Yulia Samoilova in the Crimea occupied by Russia and then decide on its admission or non-admission to Ukraine.
In turn, the Kremlin confirmed the visit to occupied Crimea by the Russian participant of Eurovision-2017 Yulia Samoilova. Peskov said that the artists are in the Eurovision song contest “sing, not make political statements”.
