“Premier” of Crimea Sergey Aksenov believes “shameless” the decision of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) to ban Eurovision participant from Russia Yulia Samoilova from entering Ukraine.
“This is filth. The Ukrainian Government has once again demonstrated to the world its complete insanity and utter lack of any notions of morality, honour and conscience. It’s impossible to deal with such characters. I think after such a decision every decent person, including participants of the Eurovision, must boycott the Contest in Kyiv. Ukraine must be deprived the right to host. It would be right and fair,” wrote Aksenov on Facebook.
In addition, he invited Samoilova “to visit the Russian Crimea as often as she is able”.
As a reminder, yesterday, the 22nd of March, the Security Service of Ukraine banned participant of Eurovision 2017 from Russia Yulia Samoilova from entering Ukraine for three years for violation of Ukrainian legislation. Previously, it was known that Samoilova had performed in the annexed Crimea in 2015.
The singer said that she had performed in Crimea like “in any other place” and had had no understanding of any violation of the law on the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
