“I am a musician, not a bat in the political arena.” – Ukraine in Eurovision

On 23 February, the Ukrainian Eurovision National Selection Vidbir took place. In the end, the singer MARUV won the competition with 11 points: 5 from the jury and the maximum of 6 from televoting. And look, all was perfect. Awesome song, amazing performance but… the Ukrainian government put a stop to this. The Eurovision song contest: it’s a contest for music, not for politics.
