“Personally, I am strongly opposed to this maiden took part in the Ukrainian Eurovision song contest. Of course, the very part of Samoilova in the competition is a political provocation on the part of the Russian Federation. She deliberately went to such action, then to try to tell the world community, they say, look, Ukraine did not allow the person with a disability. But one law for all”, – said the adviser Avakov.
Shkiryak also said that due to its anti-Ukrainian position on Crimea, it is necessary to prohibit entry to Ukraine.
