STOCKHOLM, May 16. /TASS/. Organizers of the Eurovision musical contest refused to comment on statements of Ukrainian politicians regarding the international song contest to be held next year and Russia’s participation in it.
"I don’t think we as organizers should engage in a debate with politicians via the media in the context of the Eurovision song contest," Eurovision event supervisor and television event executive at the European Broadcasting Union Sietse Bakker told TASS on Monday.
Member of Ukraine’s Supreme Rada Anton Geraschenko said earlier that Russian representatives voicing "support of Russian aggression against Ukraine" will not be able to take part in the Eurovision-2017 to be held in Ukraine.
